Dear friends, thank you all for the answers!
Yes, I use Windows 10 and out of habit from the old days, I installed third-party antivirus software.
But judging by your answers, now we can completely trust our security to Microsoft products.
It seems that this is really the best solution for us today.
Thanks again to everyone!
Good luck to everyone and congratulations on the upcoming holidays!

I use windows defender. That's pretty accessible. With that, I don't need another antivirus program.

Hi I used MSE when I had windows 7. However, when my windows 7 bit the dust I upgraded to ten. I was going to do that anyway. I knew 7 is going out next month.  Now that I have it. I just use windows defender.  There you have it.

A third for Windows Defender/Windows Security if you are using Windows 8.1 or 10.

If you're still on Windows 7, now is the time to upgrade to Windows 10, as it's barely over 1 month until it falls out of support.

Re: Using an External Numpad

Luke Davis
 

Can you tell me the brands and maybe even model numbers?

From the research I've been doing in the last couple hours, it seems to be that most external numpads just send the keyboard version of the number-row scancodes, not the numpad version. Therefore Windows has no way of knowing that there is a separate keyboard involved.

Some of the really expensive stuff, like Leopold brand (but not all of them) appear to send the correct sequences, but most of the cheap stuff apparently doesn't, or it's a crap shoot at any rate. But, I'm not paying over $100 for a number pad.

Subject: [nvda] Using an External Numpad

Hello

Well, it has finally happened again: I have obtained a laptop with no numpad.

Since I actually intend for this to be portable (not a desktop replacement, in other words), and I hate the laptop
layout, I thought I could just plug in an external numpad, switch to desktop layout, and poof.

But no joy: the numpad does not get grafted on to the existing keyboard as if the keyboard had a numpad. Even in desktop
mode, the keys are read as home, end, pgup, pgdn, etc..

Is there some known way to cause an external numpad to be perceived by NVDA as a built in numpad for purposes of the
desktop layout?

I have tried remapping with gestures, but that just results in things like the up arrow key becoming unavailable on the
regular keyboard (being mapped to read current line instead of just the numpad 8 I intended).

I suppose I may need to find a way to cause Windows not to replicate the normal keyboard scancodes when the numpad is
used.

Re: Does NVDA work with gaming keyboards?

Yes, Gene, I thought of that and tried it with no effect.  Tyler, it is  my husband's keyboard and it works for him.  I am used to using an ancient laptop with JAWS is why I am questioning the keyboard.  No special anti-virus.  Thanks all, I will keep working on it.

Re: Does NVDA work with gaming keyboards?

Tyler Spivey
 

What makes you think it's the keyboard? Does the keyboard work?
Do you, perhaps, have an antivirus program that might be intercepting the keys?

Hi


I do not know about gaming keyboards but if it is a web page you need to be in browse mode for the quick navigation keys to work not in focus mode.


It sounds like you are not in browse mode so there might of be a edit box?


You can change to browse mode with nvda key + space bar.
