Gene, I have used numpad very little until getting this laptop.
I assume you mean just pushing the numpad 7 by itself when
nomlock is off, right? If that is the case it does not do
anything if it can be used in an email as that is where I tried
it. When I push any of those three numbers it just says
clipboard. If you would like for me to write you privately,
please let me know.
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

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

I'm sorry, but that's incorrect and, in actuality, very seldom

I only have folks use laptop layout if they are already
familiar with it and prefer it, or if they have a laptop that

That is the minority of laptops produced today.
