moderated num pad


Judy
 

Hi, when the num pad is locked on I have the numbers and all, but when I turn if off, the keys do nothing. No enter key, no left right mouse keys, it says and does nothing. What’s wrong. Thanks. Judy & Libby

Hello.

We might need more information. What kind of keyboard is this? Is this a laptop? Is there something else that might be running that uses the num pad if num lock is off? When did this start happening and can you think of anything that might have changed to cause a new behaviour? Have you tried restarting? Does for iexample NVDA also not respond to numpad keys?

If you are using a laptop, maybe there is something specific about the make and modela nd its keyboard number pad. It seems that many laptops have weird keyboard settings that can be adjusted in bios that are independent of the operating system.

So sorry, I’m on a desktop computer. Using Win 10, and Jaws 2019. I can’t think of a thing I did different at all to cause this to happen.  It doesn’t matter about the browser or search engine, it just doesn’t work. Judy & Libby

Has this always been a problem or did this start happening recently. If the latter, how long ago?

Hey.

 

I was asking about nVDA because it’s another programme that uses the number pad for a different purpose that’s not, well, numbers. If that works, you know it’s a JAWS-related issue. I can’t really think of other programmest aht make use of the number pad in this way but, there must be some. Not browsers or search engines though, certainly.

If you put the keyboard learn function on with insert + nubmer row 1, what happens when you tryt he number pad with num lock off? You should hear the appropraite screen-reader function described to you when you do this. Although I’m guessing this won’t work either.

Hello Judy:

 

In JAWS, there is a setting, “Differentiate Between Numpad Keys and Extended Keys”. By default, this is supposed to be unchecked. Press INSERT+6 to get into the JAWS Settings Center, then press CTRL+SHIFT+D to get into the default settings. Now, search for “differentiate” without the quotes. What do you see when you start arrowing down?

 

Best wishes,

 

Curtis Chong

Are you sure the ctrl or alt key isn't locked for some reason? (Try
tapping all four of these keys - that is both the left and right ctrl
and alt keys - a few times and see if the numpad starts working).

Hi all, thanks for all the suggestions but none worked. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Microsoft disability yesterday, but he couldn’t get it to work either. It is certainly strange that it works when locked, but not when unlocked. I miss the jaws and pc cursors. Any other possible suggestions would be appreciated. Judy & Libby


Artur Räpp
 

Hi,

 

If you are using the latest JAWS 2022 then you can switch temporarily to the default settings, to find out is this related to JAWS or not.

To do that in JAWS 2022

Press JAWS key + space bar.

Then z

If the problem persist, then it is not from JAWS

To restore your settings, press again INS+Space, then z

If you do not have the latest JAWS, you can cut all files from your user settings folder to a temporary folder for a second to check is it a setting or a script, what causes that.

 

Second possible solution. Maybe you have accidentally turned-on mouse keys in settings.

To turn mouse keys off (I have here Windows 11. I can not check in Windows 10)

Open Windows settings (Win+i)

Search for

Mouse keys

Or move to Accessibility option, open it (enter)

Move to Mouse option, open it (Enter)

Tab to Mouse keys option. If is turned on, turn it off with space bar

 

No more ideas unfortunately

Hi all, thanks for all the suggestions but none worked. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Microsoft disability yesterday, but he couldn’t get it to work either. It is certainly strange that it works when locked, but not when unlocked. I miss the jaws and pc cursors. Any other possible suggestions would be appreciated. Judy & Libby
