I can't help with your laptop issue, except to say that you probably do 
have a scroll lock key. For instance, I have a Logitech wireless 
keyboard, and my scroll lock is actually fn-pause. So one of your keys, 
with the fn key added, should do scroll lock for you.

As for finding out what the Echo is saying, you don't have to wake up 
jaws and do OCR. Run either tapple.dsk or echocric.dsk and learn how 
text Talker's review functions work. But briefly, hit ctrl-l, then a 
letter from a-x, that picks your line number. Once you've done that you 
can move around with the arrow keys. 't' toggles between letter and word 
mode for the horizontal arrows. esc exits. But it's detailed really well 
on both disks. Good luck!
