And with HP laptops it can be changed in the BIOS but that requires
the assistance of someone who can see.

Hello Barbra,
Below are the only notes I have on the subject, but I do not know if they

Cheers Kevin.
Multi-media Functions
1. If the function keys on your laptop are assigned to multi-media first
hold down the "Function Key"" (The left-most key on the spacebar row) in
order for the function key to work correctly.
2. Every time I boot the Lenovo, I press fn+escape. That enables the
regular function keys till I shut it down. note that it can be turned off
completely in the comes

Subject: function keys not working properly

Hi JFW friends,

I believe this topic has been discussed before, but, I can't seem to locate
my notes about this.

Now, when I press the "jaws/insert" key, and F12 for getting time, for
example, JAWS is not speaking this. I thought that I had corrected this
problem before, by going in to the "settings" menu, but can't seem to
determine where to find these instructions.

I have a Dell computer which does not have the "applications" key, but has
the FN key.

Any help would be appreciated.

Barbara H.
