Hi Clifford,

 

If & when you're at home, would you please find out the exact model number, if possible?  I did a search on Amazon for a Microsoft 5000 wireless keyboard, & the results weren't anything near what you mentioned.  Thank you very much for any help & feedback you can provide.

I have a Microsoft keyboard that meets all of these requirements.  It isn’t the lightest or thinnest, but it’s been very reliable.  I think it’s the 5000 model, but it’s at home and I’m not.  It was around $30 on Amazon when I bought it a couple years ago.

Lt. Gen. Mike B, I strongly recommend the Logitech MK270.  It will typically
come with a mouse; as such, itt's a wireless keyboard and mouse combo.  It
satisfies the requirements you listed; uses two AAA batteries.  It also has
eight media keys above the F1-F12 keys.  It comes with a nano-USB plug, just
plug it in and forget it!  It is NOT bluetooth, works with Windows and, if
one uses an OTG cable, it can be used as a keyboard with a smartphone.  In
fact, I do this time and time again. 

About five years ago, my restless legs wandered into Microcenter; I found
about six of this keyboard on their shelf.  I stole three at $19.99 each.  I
use one at my home office, one at my store, and the third one is a backup.
I have not had to change the batteries since I grabbed this keyboard; in
fact, I am typing this message on it!  If you were next door to me, I'll
bring the backup over for you to play with before making a purchase.  But
you're too busy holding down the fort at your garrison, and I am too lazy to
move your tent!!

Anyway, I don't believe you'll regret grabbing the Logitech MK270; me thinks
you may be able to find it on Amazon, though I don't know the price at the
time of writing. 

All the best sire, good luck hunting!!

Sincerely,
Olusegun

Re: Highlighting, creating headings, and creating lists in Word

Quentin Christensen
 

If you really like your plain text but want a bit of formatting, you might be interested in MarkDown.  It's especially useful for creating web text but of course has all kinds of applications: https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

Essentially it's plain text, but certain combinations, which don't get in the way of reading the text, can have various meanings when passed to a program which knows about Markdown.

For instance:

## This is a heading

**This text is bold**

1. This is the first numbered list item
2. This is the second numbered list item.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Terry,

 

It depends on what you do with the text file.

 

If you press enter on it to open it from file explorer for instance, it will open in NotePad by default.  Notepad is a basic text editor which means you can save the actual text - letters, numbers, spaces, dollar signs etc, but no formatting (so no headings, no bold, underline, different fonts etc).  Selecting text still works exactly as I described, and you can still use the characters I suggested to denote lists in a plain text file, it's just that you will need to do that for every list item.

 

If you specifically open your text file in Word, then you can use all those features I mentioned and add headings etc to your text, however, you will need to then save the file as a Word document in order to keep that formatting.  (Note, you can save in some other formats like RTF which will also keep much Word formatting - when you save in a format other than a Word document, Word will warn you about what may be lost).

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Nancy,

 

In short:

Highlighting: Hold down SHIFT and use the regular navigation keys (arrows, home, end, control+arrows etc) to move through your document.  As you move, the text will be selected.  If you are using NVDA, press NVDA+shift+up arrow (or in laptop keyboar layout use NVDA+shift+s) to read the selection.

 

Creating headings: Press control+alt+1 to make the current line heading 1, control+alt+2 for heading 2 and control+alt+3 for heading level 3.   After you type the line, when you press enter, the next line will be normal.  Otherwise, press control+shift+n to revert to normal text.

 

Lists: Press asterisk then a space to start a bulleted list.  a hyphen and a space will start a list with dashes or type 1 then a full stop and a space to start a numbered list. As you press enter, a new bullet will be created (or the next number) on the following line, ready to type the next item.  Press ENTER twice to finish the list.

 

If you found that useful, you may be interested in our Microsoft Word for NVDA training material, which is arguably the most comprehensive guide to using Word with a keyboard (and NVDA) there is: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Mike,

I had just such a keyboard.  It was made by Logitech and came with a wireless mouse.  After a few weeks it failed to function.  I sent it back and  the replacement also failed in short order.  I suspect, however, that the problem was with my new laptop.  All of the ports were funky, e.g. it took half an hour to boot up with my scanner connected.  One night I got a ms download and all my problems were solved.

I have a Microsoft keyboard that meets all of these requirements.  It isn’t the lightest or thinnest, but it’s been very reliable.  I think it’s the 5000 model, but it’s at home and I’m not.  It was around $30 on Amazon when I bought it a couple years ago.

Hi All,

 

I would like to get a wireless keyboard that's old school per say.  Y'all know, 102 / 104 keys, QWERTY style, 1 with 2 Start menu / Windows keys, 2 alt keys, an applications / context menu key, & a full NumPad.  I know I'm asking for a lot, but if any of y'all know of such an animal, would you please let me know the brand & model number?  All help will be greatly appreciated!  Thank y'all mooy moocho.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: Wireless Keyboard Recommendations?

Mike,

I had just such a keyboard.  It was made by Logitech and came with a wireless mouse.  After a few weeks it failed to function.  I sent it back and  the replacement also failed in short order.  I suspect, however, that the problem was with my new laptop.  All of the ports were funky, e.g. it took half an hour to boot up with my scanner connected.  One night I got a ms download and all my problems were solved.

Re: installing latest version of OE

Hi Vicki,
 
Click on the link below & then click on the donate link.  For $20 you get 3 keys.  Each key can be used 10 times on the same computer.    If you ever switch versions it'll require a new key.  I would suggest that you install version, 2.2.1, this is the latest, & remember to run it as administrator when installing.  Oh yeah, key codes are only required for versions, 2.1.1, & newer.

Hi Vicki,
 
You can install over the existing version.  But, the install won't finish unless you have a new key code.

I am currently using OE version 1.5.1.
 
I want to update with the latest version, 221.
 
I will be using the scripts for JAWS 2018.
 
Do I need to uninstall my current version before installing the latest or can I install the update over the top of the older version?
 
Thanks.

Have you actually used OE under windows10?  I may not have the same version, but every time microsoft updates my windows, it blows away my OE.  Something's gonna have to change here.

I provided a link to the news section, where you could have found the download link at the top of the page, but the below is a link to the direct download page. It has the free version and the pro version, which is the 28 version now. The free version, 27, is not as accessible. My guess is though that when the pro version hits 29 28 will be free.
