Subject: Re: [win10] quick question about Narrator
Have you rebooted your computer?
No, but that’s because don’t have any, all the ones we have are Bluetooth, and it seems silly to go out and buy one when there’s no guarantee that it’ll solve the problem.
Oh yes. You have a long history of weird keyboard issue threads.
Did you ever try plugging in an external keyboard to your laptop?
My insert key, whenever I press it Jaws says alt windows q not insert.
Which keys? If the keys perform a Windows command, they will work no matter which screen reader you are using. If the keys perform specific screen reader commands then they will require the particular screen reader for them to work. The same is true of keyboard commands specific to programs.
For example, the command Windows M is a Windows command. It works in JAWS, NVDA and Narrator and minimizes all open windows and brings the focus to the desktop. Because this is a Windows command, no screen reader is required. A sighted Windows user can use this key combination. Which commands are you asking about?

“By returning to me and resting, you will be saved;
Your strength will be in keeping calm and showing trust.”
I want to see if these keys work properly using a different screen reader.
Press some keys?
If I understand correctly – have you tried the JAWS key pass through command to do this?
Jaws key + 3.
Okay, all I want to do is press a couple of keys that don’t seem to work with Jaws, can I do this with Narrator?
