Hi Bill,
 
What is the desktop equivalent to the laptop, Insert + comma, keystroke?  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Insert, Comma only works if your JAWS settings have been set to Laptop keyboard.

You can press five twice on the num lock. I didn't know about insert comma. In fact I tried it, and all it did was write commas. It is definitely cumbersome.

Hi Everyone,

I find it very hard to ascertain when JAWS reads out the letters B and D respectively. In other words, the two sound so similar that it is very difficult to figure when it is reading out which. This problem arises when it reads out acronyms containing any of these two letters.
The only strategy I use to deal with this is to make it speak the character concerned phonetically by pressing insert+comma, but that is a very slow and cumbersome process.
I use JAWS 16 on a Windows 10 machine. I run JAWS at a very high speed, roughly 65%, but the nature of my work makes such a pace necessary.

Best,
Rahul
