Nicholas, with regards to numpads, etc. I almost always just use external USB keyboards with all my laptops, since it suits me.


Stay well

Hi Heaven,
Thanks for your response.
I'm with you. At least you can use the numpad insert.
I'll let you know how I go. I'm just busy investagating if all my software will be compatable or if I will need to do software upgrades as well.
Thanks again for all your advice.
Regards
Nicholas

Hi Nicholas

I am using an Asus laptop. It is faster than Dell, but just as good. I
suppose the SSD has something to do with the speed though.

The only pain is that I do not have an extended Insert, but the numpad's
insert works well enough.

Hi Heaven,
Thanks for your response.
I must admit I didn't know that we are using windows 10 here. It doesn't
look that bad.
What make of laptop are you using? I have sent an enquiry about the numpad
as I do find it very useful.
Please let me know if you saw my email I sent to your gmail address about
the braille display.
I look forward to your response.
Regards
Nicholas

Hi Nicholas

I am not sure of Open Book.

We use Windows 10 at the College as you know, and my laptop runs
Windows
10
without a problem on 4 GB RAM. It is a 64 Bit system so 4 GB is
recommended.

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10 infoormation

Hi all,
Hope somebody can maybe assist me with some Windows 10 inforrmation.
I'm considering maybe buying a computer which is running Windows 10 to
repllace this computer which is old and giving me plenty of problems.
Is it very easy to use Windows 10 or is it a huge adjustment? I have
previously worked on a pc rnning Windows 8.
My mane questions for thee moment are:
1. I use Openbook 8.0 for scanning and reading documents. Would I be
able to run it on Windows 10 or would I have to purchase another copy?
2. Is there a certain amount of memory that I should get when
upgrading to Windows 10 or doesn't it make a differencce. I'm aware
that I have to run NVDA as Jaws doesn't support Windows 10 unless
upgrading to the latest Jaws.
If anybody has any other advice and tips for me I would really
apreciate it.
I llook forward too your responses.
Regards
Nicholas
