Re: question: laptop equivalent for NVDA+numpad divide /was/ Adobe Flash Player with NVDA


I'm not sure what the procedure is using the laptop keyboard layout for opening the NVDA menu.  Someone on list should know the command.  There is a quick keys reference in the help submenu.  Once you open the NVDA menu, you can look around and find the help submenu. 
Also, there are many good tutorials if you are interested.  I won't discuss them further here unless you or others want more information.
