Re: Jaws friendly laptop

That is what I meant by form factor.
Jaws will work fine on all computers, but there are factors such as the F-keys requiring the FN key to do some of the tasks that we typically do, and I think that on the laptops where this has happened, usually that feature can be turned off in the BIOS, but perhaps someone can let you know if they haven't been able to turn that off.
I think it is important to put my hands on a laptop before buying it.
For example, my wife has an Acer where all the keys touch and there is no easily discernable distinction between all the keys, just lines where the level keys touch.
Even with dots on it, I hate it.
But we ordered it from Best Buy a long time back and I had my brother pick it up and I met him in another town when we could do so, and I would have never picked this laptop for my use, but that is what happens when you buy one ""feel untouched" you might say.

Well the layout of the keys can differ. As for the keypad thing. Only once
and that's on my Dell Enspiron 3840 desktop have I run into the issue of not
being able to use the num pad as is for JAWS. It doesn't even have the on and
off key. But than again it is a business config.
