Re: Is it worth learning the adaptations for a laptop or instead buy an external keyboard with a numpad?

There are only a few differences between using the laptop & external keyboard, mostly the insert key. If you can get used to that, I’d recommend sticking with the laptop. You’ll probably be mostly using a laptop from here on in. Attaching an external keyboard to it is clunky if you can & still want to see the screen.
You might be able to find an external numeric keypad which would be smaller & could sit right next to your laptop.

I am beginning to learn JAWS, having used Zoomtext as my reader for many years.
I use a laptop which does not have a numpad.
The JAWS support page offers an audio tutorial on how to modify my keystrokes for a laptop.
Would you recommend that I teach myself these modifications or instead purchase an external keyboard with a numpad which plugs into the laptop by a USB port?
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
