Moderated Re: Problem with Function Keys



In this case, just knowing it's an HP is enough, since I have 4 HP laptops in my household (3 different models).  Unless they've changed something radically, which I doubt, this is a settings change that requires getting into UEFI/BIOS.  And since there is no screen reader assistance on any machine until the operating system itself has loaded and applications can be launched.

The HP support page, HP Notebook PCs - How to lock or unlock the fn (function) key, gives detailed information on turning the hotkeys/action keys functionality off (or back on again) via UEFI/BIOS for the various HP laptop model ranges.
