It is a tashiba sorry don't know how to spell it. I don't think the five
will do that, but I am not sure . I will try it out tomorrow sometime and
let u know.

Hi Michael,

On your external key pad can you press the five key real fast twice and get
JAWS to go into phonetic mode, where it speaks each character as a word? And
can you let me know the specifics of your key pad like who makes it and what
is the model number?

Thanks.

Dondi

Hi I have a full size keyboard on my lap top. I use an external number pad
along with it . I do this when I am using excel. The only way it will work
is if the number pad is turned on , on the laptop, and the external one is
turned off.
This allows me to enter numbers and navigate between tabs without changing
the switch. I don't know if this is helpful to anyone, but it sure cut down
on some of my frustration. Mike

Hi,

Yes, I have tried this with the Num Lock turned off on the numeric key pad.
And all the number keys function like their suppose to I think? Here's a
list of what I got that's functional:
1 - End.
2 - Down arrow.
3 - Page down.
4 - Left arrow.
5 - Does nothing.
6 - Right arrow.
7 - Home.
8 - Up arrow.
9 - Page up.

Hi.
I don't have a Win7 machine, but when I've used JFW on a laptop with an
external numeric keypad plugged in, I had to make sure the Num Lock was off
so the numeric keypad could function the way it would on a full-sized
keyboard. Have you tried this?

HTH,
Dani

Hi Everyone,



I have a Dell Latitude e6510 laptop and I'm using a external number
key pad with it. Does anybody have any experience with this type of
setup? My number pad works fine for numbers but when I try to use it
for in conjunction with JAWS I run in to limitations. Such as today I
was trying to get JAWS to read letters phonetically but when I pressed
the number five key twice it didn't work. In fact nothing works when
it comes to the number five key. If I press it once JAWS won't read
the letter the cursor is on. I have access to a full size keyboard
that I can plug in and do all this with, so I know it works just like
it's suppose too. But do to space constraints using this keyboard with
my
laptop on a daily bases isn't practical.

Windows 7, 32 bit.

JAWS 13 / 12.
