Re: how to check spelling of a suggested word in spellchecker if you don't have a numpad on the laptop

Numpad 5 is the desktop keyboard layout keystroke for "report current word in review". If you have a laptop which does not have a dedicated numberpad, you might consider setting NVDA to use laptop keyboard layout from NVDA's keyboard settings (press NVDA+control+k to open the keyboard settings directly). If you are using laptop keyboard layout, the command to report the current word is NVDA+control+. (NVDA, control, full stop or period).
Note on many laptops, the Fn key can be used with other keys as the number pad. Usually this uses the 7, 8 and 9 on the number row as those keys, U, I, O as 4, 5, 6 and K, L, ; as 1, 2, 3 etc. You'd have to work out which key did "numlock" in that case to ensure it was "off" (with numlock on, pressing numpad 5 will result in the number 5 being pressed in any case).
