Hi David

I am guessing the following page is along the lines of what you are
trying to sus out.

A while ago i had a netbook which did not have a numeric keypad but it
was emulated on the main keyboard. I had to do along the lines of what
is on the link provide at

I had to make sure the numeric keypad part was not turned on and if i
remember right i had to use the function key plus the nvda key plus any
of the letters it mentions. I would have to have a play on the wifes
netbook later on and see which keys they are or what I had to do, but it
was along these lines. I ended up getting lazy and brought a full
keyboard then all I had to do was remember the desktop commands.

I can later on find out which keys they are and put them some where up
on the website of mine maybe under trouble shooting section.

I'm using the latest NVDA 2016 on a development laptop. This machine
does not have a keypad. I've gone over the manual for laptop layout
with regards object navigation and screen review, I am just not
getting it.

Does anyone have any pointers? Things that'll stick in the memory?
