Hi Chris,
 
There are 15 of these so called pre assigned buttons / keys, & none of them mute!  The Internet Explorer is #1 with email being #2, mute is supposed to be #13, but doesn't do didley squat, & #14 is volume up with #15 being volume down.  I did find the software, but for what these keyboards are going to be used for it doesn't need to be installed since I've got shortcut keystrokes already assigned.  Thanks again.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

True, but if he presses the button that mutes speech, then presses a key combination such as insert t, and gets no feedback, it’s a pretty good indication that he’s found the mute button.

I've never heard Jaws identify any keys on a keyboard past the standard keys

and the numeric keypad.

I have had several keyboards in the past with extra keys, and the only way to identify their function was to press them and see what happens.

Many times these extra keys are visually identified by symbols and not words.

Hi Chris,

 

Okay, the 1st key to the left opens Internet Explorer & key #2 from the left opens my email client, & none of the rest do anything.  Is there a trick to make some of the keys mute, volume up / down....?  Like I said it didn't come with any software, & so far I haven't found any on the internet as well.  BTW, I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, IE11, & jaws, if that means anything.  Thanks much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Well, pressing the buttons won’t make hell brake loose. It’s a good way to find out what they do. Probably the only risk is that you’ll mute your sound, so it might be a good idea to make your screen reader speak after each button press. That way, you’ll know when you’ve found the mute button if such exists. Otherwise, you’ll probably just launch your browser and such.

Hi Blaster,

 

These keys are pre programmed to do certain things like mute, volume up / down, open your email client...

No software came with the keyboards, only a few worthless papers / booklets that talk about the warranty in 40 languages or more, & other totally useless crap!  LOL 

 

I don't like to play with unknown keys because I got my self into some real serious trouble screwing around like that at 1 time, & I really don't want to put myself in that same predicament again if I can help it.  Thanks much.

I'm not sure if this is the same thing or not, but when I got my
Logitech keyboard I needed to install a program called "set point'
which allowed me to choose what the extra keys above the function
keys did. The software was mostly accessible, not totally, but
accessible enough to get those keys setup.
I wonder if Microsoft has a similar software package?

HTH,
Blaster
