Re: Using NVDA and Number Pad on laptop
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi Ben thanks, but this is a strange beast. It has no actual home keys as such. Currently the media keys are the arrow keys with the function key, function key plus Up arrow play pause down arrow stop, left arrow previous track, right arrow next track. Function key with function 9 10 or 11 is volume mute, down, up. I’ve now worked out that control numbpad seven is home key, Control numpad one is end, Control numpad for is beginning of line and control numpad six is end of line. But, I’m getting there. Thanks for your help.

I just came across an Acer laptop yesterday for the first time in a while. This model had a small Page Up key above the left arrow, and a small Page Down key directly above the right arrow. If you hold the Function key (second from the bottom left) and press the Page Up, it becomes Home. Hold the Function and press Page Down for End. I thought it might be worth mentioning in case yours is the same. It’s quite intuitive when you get used to it.
Of course, still follow Brian’s advice regarding changing the behaviour of the F1 to F12 keys for the best screen reader experience.

Ryan to Brian, thank you very much. You’ve been extremely helpful. I will download the manual and bury myself in it. We get so used to a particular laptop layout and what actions do what, it becomes muscle memory. Get a new one and you have to start again. Thanks again and happy New Year.

The depths of denial one can be pushed to by outside forces of disapproval can make you not even recognize yourself to yourself.
