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

Yes, you don’t need a numb pad the lap top keyboard is easy to use and learn. In fact I much prefer it . You can do most selections without moving your fingers from the keyboard home typing position.

This is really one of those personal preference things. However, if you are only going to use your laptop with JAWS and you haven't been using JAWS on a desktop computer, then I think it would be just fine to learn and use the laptop settings.
When I got my laptop, I bought an external keyboard with a numpad because I also use a desktop here at home and a ⠙⠑⠎⠅⠞⠕⠏ when volunteering. I know I'm a wimp, but switching all the time between the two layouts would have made me go silly!

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.
