vmware fusion keystrokes

Forum
macOS and Mac Apps
Hello folks, I will soon be putting vmware fusion on my mac to allow me to use windows for word processing requiring Microsoft word. Is there a guide to using this application or a list of keyboard commands? thanks.

I'd also be interested in hearing how folks use Fusion versus Bootcamp on their Macs. Do folks run another screen reader (like JAWS) in the Windows environment? I'm convinced for now that word processing of complex documents needs to be in the Windows world.

Hi again folks, I have been working for a bit now with fusion on the mac. I have been looking for a way to easily silence voiceover when on that window and returning to it in other windows. I tried having an activity created where voiceOver was silenced within the fusion window but it did not seem to do what I wanted. I am also continuing to have difficulty mapping the caps lock key within wht windows side to enable me to use the system access screen reading commands. All that being said however, this is sure a neat way to use the windows application I need within my mac. the good part is that I discovered through a podcast from Mike Arigo that if you do it right your windows application can even applear within the mac application folder, enabeling you to launch them from there.

Here is what i do. In fusion i just turn voiceover off when i have started the machine up, i can press control command f for full screen. then press command f5 to start vo when needed. To answer the vmware fusion question with using an insert key with system access, i'd suggest checking out this link. I use it and it works great. http://www.applevis.com/podcast/episodes/new-updated-remapping-keys-your-macs-keyboard-enhance-voiceover-experience
