Re: key assignments in NVDA

I don't seem to be smart enough to learn about object navigation.  However, I am using laptop configuration on my desktop computer.  I find the commands (that I can remember) more convenient.

I have seen this issue come up before.  I'm going to catch up with Mick and will raise it this afternoon.  In the meantime, clearly there are users who have NVDA setup in Laptop keyboard layout and want to use the number pad for navigation.  Are there any users who have NVDA in Laptop keyboard layout and like being able to use object navigation from the number pad as well?

Just thinking that if there are people who use laptop layout and number pad object navigation, your third hybrid keyboard layout could be a solution - but if not, maybe setting the "desktop" object navigation keys to be desktop (only) keys would be a better solution.

Hi Quentin,

As this issue has been brought up on a few occasions before, I've been thinking of an easier solution that may help persons that have the same desire. What I was thinking was that there could be a new keyboard layout that could accomodate this behaviour, or that the laptop layout by default would behave like this. Then, there could be a different layout called hybrid or something like that, with laptop keystrokes and the NUMPAD using object navigation keys.
