it might help clarify things if we knew the answer to the
When you use numpad commands by themselves, do they work
correctly? In other words, does numpad 8 read the current line
of the object you are on? Does numpad 7 move to the previous
line and numpad 9 move to the next line?
I also did a bit of experimentation and if a current or near
current version of NVDA is being used, it doesn't matter, for
what we are discussing, if laptop or desktop mode is being
used. it may for other commands, but the numpad review commands
such as shift 7, 8, and 9, work in both modes. Before
continuing with any experimentation, do the following to make
completely sure you are working in the correct screen-review
Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1 until you hear no
previous review mode. If you changed review modes at some
point, you may well have unexpected results.

I'm sorry, but that's incorrect and, in actuality, very seldom
the case or necessary. If you have a laptop that has a number
pad as part of its built in keyboard NVDA installs using desktop
keyboard layout because it can since all the keys are there.
I only have folks use laptop layout if they are already familiar
with it and prefer it, or if they have a laptop that does not
have a number pad as part of its built in keyboard. That is the
minority of laptops produced today.
