A guide for Jaws users, written by Chorlton Workshop for hsbp.
The numeric keypad provides an alternative set of keys for some keys which are frequently used for Jaws keystrokes. Num lock must be off to access these keys, rather than the numbers. They are very convieniently layed out for touch typing whilst using Jaws.
The home position of the middle finger is the number 5, and this should have a bump on it. An easy way of exploring the numeric keypad is to use Jaws keyboard help ( INSERT+1 ). Fingering is given in the table below:
|num pad 5||third finger, home|
|up arrow||third finger, one above home|
|down arrow||third finger, one below home|
|left arrow||second finger, home|
|right arrow||fourth finger, home|
|insert||thumb, home, bottom left key|
|enter||fifth finger, home, bottom right key|
|home||second finger, one above home|
|end||second finger, one below home|
|page up||fourth finger, one above home|
|page down||fourth finger, one below home|
|delete||fourth finger, two below home|
|num lock on/off||second finger, two above home|
