Astrid,
Not to sound desparaging but does your computer have bluetooth capability? I have a WIN10 laptop which doesn't and thought I should mention it.

I have found that either button should work on either platform, it just
works better when using the correct one for the chosen platform.
So if it is not working at all, this is not the problem.

I think this is one that I use once in a while, the one with a dial.
Mine has a slot in the back for a tablet.
I like it, but it is smaller than I prefer.
The Logitech I use all the time is a full sized keyboard, just like any desktop one, only it has a lot of extra buttons that I don't use, one turns off the F-keys, but there is a volume rocker that has been handy.
I don't know the model of this one, it is either RF or IR.

The 480 is easier than the 780. There is a dial and no dongle. It is a very simple keyboard. I wore one out and just replaced mine with a 780 because I wanted a numeric keypad. Even now I'm questioning the wisdom of the purchase because the 480 was so portable. I use it on my iPad, iPhone and may use it on my fire TV if possible. I guess the option to use it on my Lenovo will be nice. Since I have a Corsair USB on it now. It will be nice to have the option if I ever want it.

moderated Virtual Ribbons No Longer Working in Outlook 2016

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7.  For no apparent reason, today when I starting using Outlook the virtual ribbons are not working properly.  I have confirmed that “use virtual ribbons” is checked in my JAWS settings.  Until now, they were working normally.  Now, when I press the “Alt” key to activate the ribbon, it just says “blank.”  Does anyone know what might be wrong?

 

Thanks,

Richard

I’m Sure Sieghard will answer, but I think you have answered your own question.

The dongle is using one of the 3 switches, so to pair with a 4th device, you would have to turn Bluetooth off on one device, pair the 4th device to its slot, and then you would have to be sure to turn Bluetooth off on the 4th device and back on the third device before being able to connect again.

 

The only reason I asked about the button for the dongle is that the Logitech H800 headpones have a switch with a Bluetooth position and a different position for the USB dongle, allowing easy switching between two devices.

 

Personally, while I know sometimes having a qwerty keyboard connected to a braille note taker is handy; I’d prioritize the iPhone over the Polaris.

But, that is just me.

 

The Logitech K780 sounds like a keyboard I should be recommending  to my clients.

Sieghard is obviously the authority on this, but if you have to use one of the switch keys f1, f2, or f3, to connect to the Windows 7 machine, then you are stuck with 3 devices only.

If there is a separate button for the Dongle connection, then you should be able to follow the standard Bluetooth pairing steps to connect to the 4th device with the remaining f key.

Hello, again, everyone.

 

So far, I have successfully paired my new Logitec K780 bluetooth keyboard to my two office computers.  I had to use the USB dongle to pair my older Windows 7 machine, but was able to do a bluetooth pairing for my newer Windows 10 computer.  I also plan to pair the keyboard with my Polaris Braille note-taker.

 

Once the Polaris pairing is done, this will mean that I have interfaced the keyboard with three devices so far.

 

I believe I read that if you use the dongle for one device, you can theoretically pair the keyboard with four devices.

 

Is this true?

 

If so, how can it be done, because I think there are only three device-selection buttons on the K780.

 

If I can pair to a fourth device, I’d like to try the keyboard with my IPhone 8.

 

In closing, I want to thank everyone for all of your patience as I sort things out here with the K780 keyboard.  I realize that the thread might have been slightly off topic, so your tolerance is very much appreciated.

So far, I have successfully paired my new Logitec K780 bluetooth keyboard to my two office computers.  I had to use the USB dongle to pair my older Windows 7 machine, but was able to do a bluetooth pairing for my newer Windows 10 computer.  I also plan to pair the keyboard with my Polaris Braille note-taker.

 

Once the Polaris pairing is done, this will mean that I have interfaced the keyboard with three devices so far.

 

I believe I read that if you use the dongle for one device, you can theoretically pair the keyboard with four devices.

 

Is this true?

 

If so, how can it be done, because I think there are only three device-selection buttons on the K780.

 

If I can pair to a fourth device, I’d like to try the keyboard with my IPhone 8.

 

In closing, I want to thank everyone for all of your patience as I sort things out here with the K780 keyboard.  I realize that the thread might have been slightly off topic, so your tolerance is very much appreciated.

I had an out-of-the-box thought this morning.
Does the Polaris have a usb port for a qwerty keyboard?
If so, try using the USB dongle on the Polaris.
That way you simply have to swap the dongle rather than dealing with the switches.
Let me know if that works.

I think 3 devices is all you can do including the Dongle, i.e. you can do 3 Bluetooth devices or use the Dongle and then do 2 more devices via Bluetooth.

I have never found a separate button for the USB dongle, it is my understanding it is whichever of the easy switch keys you use.

I’m Sure Sieghard will answer, but I think you have answered your own question.

The dongle is using one of the 3 switches, so to pair with a 4th device, you would have to turn Bluetooth off on one device, pair the 4th device to its slot, and then you would have to be sure to turn Bluetooth off on the 4th device and back on the third device before being able to connect again.

 

The only reason I asked about the button for the dongle is that the Logitech H800 headpones have a switch with a Bluetooth position and a different position for the USB dongle, allowing easy switching between two devices.

 

Personally, while I know sometimes having a qwerty keyboard connected to a braille note taker is handy; I’d prioritize the iPhone over the Polaris.

But, that is just me.

 

The Logitech K780 sounds like a keyboard I should be recommending  to my clients.

Right now, I have the dongle connection for the Windows 7 PC set on the first button—button 1.

 

If there is a separate button for the dongle connection, I would think it should be easy to switch to it, but am not sure.

 

Will wait to see what others suggest.

Sieghard is obviously the authority on this, but if you have to use one of the switch keys f1, f2, or f3, to connect to the Windows 7 machine, then you are stuck with 3 devices only.

If there is a separate button for the Dongle connection, then you should be able to follow the standard Bluetooth pairing steps to connect to the 4th device with the remaining f key.

I’m not at home now where the keyboard is, but it’s close to a regular-sized computer keyboard.

 

It also has an extra ledge on the back to accommodate an IPhone or Ipad so that a person can see the screen if needed.

With some effort, I actually was able to get the function keys to work the way I want them to.

 

I had to go into the Logitec Options software that I installed when I activated the keyboard and check a box that said something like use the standard function keys.

 

Once I did this, I was fine.

 

The Windows function keys now work normally as they should.

 

If I want to do something like switch to another device, raise or lower the volume level, etc.,  I simply have to hold down the FN key on the keyboard and then use the function key I need for what I want to do.

 

So, all is well now.

 

By the way, I really love the Logitech K780!

 

I wish I had bought one years ago, and at yesterday’s price of $39 US, it was an excellent bargain.

Hi Tom,

Do the F-keys work on the laptop as you would like, or do you have to press the FN key on that as well?

The reason I ask is that the keyboard should only do what your computer would do.

You may have to disable this in the BIOS of that computer.

Hello, Everyone.

 

I originally wanted to write off list to Sieghard, but can’t seem to retrieve his personal address from the below e-mail, so I’ll certainly welcome anyone’s response.

 

I have successfully paired my Logitec K780 keyboard with my new Windows 10 laptop via bluetooth, and also have paired it wirelessly with my older Windows 7 computer via the dongle that was provided with the keyboard.

 

To those of you who have Logitec K780 bluetooth keyboards, I have a question, though:

 

As we know, the function keys on the top of the Logitec K780 are used for many different functions, including selecting the devices to which the keyboard is paired, controling the volume level, etc.

 

The only way I can convert those function keys to the standard Windows function keys (F1 through F12) is to hold down the FN key on the lower lefthand corner of the keyboard.  This can become rather awkward when, for example, closing a Word document with Control F4 or closing an app with Alt F4.

 

We installed the logitec options software, but that has not solved this issue.

 

Is there any way to lock in the function keys so they remain the standard windows function keys, so I don’t have to press the FN key whenever I want to do something involving those standard Windows function keys? I can do this on my Windows 10 PC by toggling them on or off via the FN and escape keys.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Tom,

 

If you want portable/compact the Logitech K780 is probably your best choice. It’s heavy because it’s made heavy since you can stand an iPad up in a channel which runs across from left to right above the function keys, but while it has a full numeric pad, it’s still fairly compact because it does not have the big gap you find on a full-size keyboard with the 6-pack and inverted cursor T. The K780 actually has the inverted cursor T, but it’s underneath the right shift key, think of the shift and enter key being the width of 3 other keys so the left arrow, down arrow and right arrow take up the same space as the shift key and in height the down arrow and up arrow above it are I think also the same height as the shift key.

The nice thing with this keyboard is that it is a Bluetooth keyboard, but it also comes with Logitech’s tiny unifying USB receiver so if you have a computer without Bluetooth (most likely your Windows 7 computer won’t have it), you can plug in the little dongle and use your Windows 7 PC that way and you can pair your Windows 1 PC which hopefully has Bluetooth via Bluetooth.

You can pair up to 3 devices with that keyboard so you could even pair it with your iPhone as a third device and all you have to do is press F1, F2 and F3 to switch between device 1, device 2 and device 3.

The one issue is that the function keys will not work as regular function keys unless you install the Logitech Options software where you can change this. It’s not a very accessible install, but if you have sighted help it only takes a minute or less and once installed and once you check the little checkbox to use the function keys you can just forget about it.

If you do this then on a Windows PC you have to press FN along with F1, F2 or F3 to switch devices, but if, for example FN + F3 switches to you riPhone, then in order to switch back to one of your Windows computer you only press F1 or F2 since iOS won’t require the FN key.

 

 

Best regards,

Sieghard
