Re: NVDA question regarding Mac Keyboard
Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
I think many macs do not have what we call windows keys, so how this is supposed to all be possible without some form of windos keyboard is anyyones guess. also ratherer worryingly, many new laptop Macs have no function keys, just a touch section which can have custom keys mapped to various parts of it in Mac O/S.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA question regarding Mac Keyboard
You mention this keyboard doesn't have an END key - do you need to press
another key as well - I know on a lot of smaller than full size keyboards,
they include a "Fn" key - on Windows keyboards it's usually near the bottom
left, and to get to some functions / keys you need to press that with
another key. So if END is actually on the down arrow, you might need to
press NVDA+SHIFT+FN+DOWN ARROW?
As Sukil said, try it in Input Help mode (press NVDA+F1) and see what that
reads out. That should confirm you have the correct keystroke, and also
some keyboards may not let you press more than two or three keys at once.
Finally, with the status bar, check that the program you are using actually
has a status bar, as not all do. If the program you are in doesn't have a
status bar, NVDA should still report "No status line found."
