Re: Jaws friendly laptop


It shouldn't matter which brand of laptop you purchase, except for brand reputation.
Note: keyboard layouts vary from laptop brands and different models.  You may want to get hands-on with one to make sure things like the insert key and pgup and pgdn are in decent positions.
Also, some have taken over the function keys, but usually those settings can be reverted in the setup or in worst case in the BIOS.

Subject: [jaws-users] Jaws friendly laptop

List, my Toshiba laptop is in need of replacement.

Have any of you on the list recently purchased a new 15.6 inch screen laptop computer that works well with jaws?

I would like another laptop that has a built in keypad.

Also, has jaws worked well with the new solid state drives?

Thanks for any help.

Like many of us using jaws and access technology for the last 28 years, can remember in the past being sure we got a laptop with the right kind of video card and audio card.  That said my current Toshiba was bought off Amazon with standard video and audio card.

Again, thanks for any ideas or suggestions.
