Thanks for posting this.

I went and turned it into a Word docx file with a table.
As well as an Excel spreadsheet because I prefer to have this kind of information in a file.
You can grab them both in a zip file from my web site. The heading level 2, toward the bottom of my page is creatively titled, Win 10 Calculator keyboard commands.

You simply type whatever it is you want to calculate, e.g. 123*12,
press enter and the result, 1476, is spoken.
You can also add a percentage to a figure, say you have a 7% sales tax
where you live and you buy something for $32.50 and you want to know
how much it is with the tax added.
Just type 32.5+7%, as soon as you type the % symbol which is Shift + 5
on the number row, you hear 2.275 which is what 7% on $32.50 is, then
press enter and you hear the final result, 34.775 It really is pretty
simple, use the standard symbols like + - * and / to add, subtract,
multiply or divide, enter always gives you the result and escape
clears what you just typed.

Hi all,

I understand this question is too simple for you all, but I would need
instructions how to use calculator with JAWS for simple calculations.
I am using latest JAWS and Windows 10.
