Remapping Insert Key in Fusion

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi, guys!
I'm really happy to say that I was able to install Windows 7 on VMWare Fusion on my own. :)
I am, however, running into a bit of an issue. JAWS' read by word command is insert and the arrow keys, but I can't seem to remap an insert key. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

I run a Windows 7 VM using Fusion as well, and ran into this problem. I ended up using a free tool called SharpKeys to map an Insert key. I also used this tool to map an Application key (the key that brings up the right click/context menu). I mapped them to the two keys between the Spacebar and Arrow Keys since I found I don't really use them in OS X.

You can download SharpKeys here:

SharpKeys works fine with JAWS/NVDA too, so you shouldn't have any trouble setting up the mappings .
