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

It is a matter of personal preference, I can only tell you what I, as a long-time JAWS user, do. First, I always use laptop keyboard configuration, even on my desktop and full keyboard, which allows me to use the keystroke CapsLock+I to read the line the same as Insert-UpArrow on the numpad, but I am used to have my right hand on the numpad since I began using JAWS in 1989, so on my laptop I normally use an external keyboard with numpad.

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.
