MacBook Pro :: Delete Text - Delete And Backspace Keys

Sep 12, 2007

How do I delete text. Let's say I wrote the wrong word, as you know a Windows keyboard has "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, but a MacBook keyboard only has a "Delete" key which acts like the "Backspace" key. So in order for me to delete on work I have to go behind the text and use it like backspace.. how do I just delete the word from the front?

OS X :: Why Does Delete / Backspace Go So Slow?

Jun 30, 2008

I'm fairly new to macs. I got my first a few months ago (the Air) and I LOVE it! But something has been bugging me since I got it. When you delete text on windows you hold backspace and it deletes the characters one at a time for about half a second, then it speeds up a lot and deletes them quickly. I can't figure out how to do that on a mac though. When you backspace on a mac you hold delete but it never speeds up. I've looked through forums and stuff and can't find anything else on this problem. I don't know if that means there's a really simple solution, or if it's just something that nobody really cares enough about to mention.

OS X Mavericks :: Dictation Feature Is Not Working

Aug 24, 2014

I have Mavericks 10.9.4  I'm trying to use the Dictation feature for the first time and I cannot get it to work. First of all, I downloaded the Enhanced Diction, ~750MB. Diction is 'on' and the enhanced dictation is enabled. When checking the internal microphone for operability,  I tried 'automatic and internal microphone'. It shows good activity when speaking.

Once I am in a field where I can add text, I will double click the FN key. I hear a 'one beep' sound, not the normal siri sound, and the microphone DOES NOT show up as it does on my other MAC. However, when I started the computer in safe mode (yea, I know the microphone is disabled), the microphone shows up in the text field. So this means, something is disabling my microphone in normal boot-up.

OS X Mavericks :: Dictation - Can It Translate Audio File?

Aug 20, 2014

I would like to use the Mavericks Dictation & Speech to translate an existing interview I conducted.

I have both a .wav and .aif format. 

I can't figure out if it's possible to launch the Notes app or Word, start playing my audio file through whatever app I have and have it transcribe.

MacBook Air :: Is 1.4GHz Processor Enough To Use Enhanced Dictation Function?

Jun 19, 2014

Could keep going with classes and meetings, with enhanced dictation feature which is built-in the Maverick OS and a micrphone, so my mother could be able to see on the screen what other people are saying to her. I have read that these applications use a lot of resources, and for the case of the commercial application Dragon Dictation, they recomend a 2Ghz processor. Whether a Mac Book Air with 1.4GHz i5 processor and 4Gb RAM would perform well for this task?

OS X :: Where Backspace (`) Key On Mac?

Jun 19, 2009

Like the title says, I can't find the ` key on my MacBook keyboard (I'm using my PC to type this). I need it for Perl programming. Google has failed me, which is odd because it's just a simple key function I want to find.

Jun 7, 2009

i've used PC all my life but i'm switching to a Mac hopefully by the end of this year so i've been searching the internet looking at the minor differences (i.e. alt on windows is cmd on a mac) but there's one thing i was wondering about but i can't find it. in windows, when you're in the web browser and not typing anything, you can hit the backspace key and it functions as the back button. i used this keyboard shortcut a lot and i was just wondering if you can do this on a mac as well.

MacBook Pro :: Backspace Key Not Working

Jun 23, 2014

I've got a Macbook Pro (early 2011 model) which I upgraded to Mavericks earlier this year and all has been working fine. Over the past few days I noticed my backspace key was playing up (sometimes it worked, other times I had to press hard a few times before it would work at all) until today when it decided it would not work at all. I have already checked in System Preferences and restored defaults as well as resetting the PRAM but to no avail so far. Is there anything else I can try or will I need to take it back to the store and get it looked at?

MacBook :: Backspace And Return Keys Not Working

May 23, 2009

The 'Return' and 'Backspace' keys on my mac have recently stopped working. Nothing was spilled on them and nothing seems to be wrong with them when pressed down. I also removed the keys and checked that there was nothing in the way, but there wasn't. I have rung apple and they said it would need to be taken into a store, but there isn't one near by and it will be a few weeks until i can take it in. In the meantime, is there any way that I could remap the keys in question to another couple of keys. For instance right command and right option?

MacBook :: Swap Backspace - Shift Keys?

Jul 23, 2009

Suddenly my backspace button has stopped working. Restarting or running Windows XP doesn't help a thing. Is it possible to use the right shift button as a backspace-button, you know changing what the keys do. It's quite irritating not being able to delete stuff. What I'd like: To use my right shift key instead of the backspace.

MacBook Pro :: Backspace / Home / End Function In Pages?

Aug 4, 2009

I'm still trying to figure out Pages, after having recently switched from MS Word. But ... I really, really miss the Backspace, Home, and End functions that you have on the keyboard of most Windows based PC's. Any ideas of how I can configure keyboard shortcuts, etc to make up for the lack of these functions on the Macbook Pro (13") keyboard?

IMac :: Create Left Backspace Key On Wireless?

Jan 27, 2010

Is there ANY possible way to create a left-backspace key on the wireless keyboard, like a macro or something? I am going crazy without it, and of course, the only solution I see is to buy the wired standard keyboard with the numeric keypad, which contains a left-backspace (left-delete) key.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard A And Backspace Keys Fail And Come Back At The Same Time

Dec 11, 2014

I have a Macbook Air, it's 18 months old, and the keyboard is sporadically fail. I see no pattern. The A and Backspace keys are the main two to go, they fail at the same time, and come back at the same time. 

System details:
1.7 GHz Intel Core i7
Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB
Serial: C02KVGZKF6T6 

I always keep the system up to date with software, I don't use illegal software, I can see no reason why this should be happening. I'm running Yosemite, latest updates always applied. 

Tempted to perform a clean install and see if that works. I'd book an appointment but with Christmas so close no shops are accepting bookings and the phone proved useless. 

Just thought I should test with an external keyboard to see if that also has the same issue. I'll do that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Get The "dictation" Functionality Of IPhone 4S To Work On An IMac Computer?

May 23, 2012

The iphone dictation feature is great. It is available on 4s, but not 4 or earlier phones.  It is able to keep up with a normal speaking voice, and even counting the time to correct the (few) errors in the transcription, one can create text much faster than even the fastest typist.  I know Dragon has software for this.  Might there be a way to get dictation to work on a Mac wihtout having to buy the Dragon software?

OS X Mavericks :: Contacts Won't Add Or Delete On MacBook Pro

Jun 28, 2014

I can no longer add or delete any contacts in Contacts. I am running Mavericks, 10.9.3 and I have an IPhone 5 which is up to date on its software. I have tried having iCloud syncing on and off and still cannot add or delete contacts on my MacBook Pro (brand new; with Retina display). I have looked for a preference file and cannot even find one that seems to be for Contacts. I can remove contacts from my iPhone, and I can sync it with my laptop, but the contacts I deleted on the phone are not deleted on the laptop. When syncing, which I have tried doing both wired and wireless, it takes forever to finish, it if it does at all. I usually let it set at working on step 5 for about 5 minutes before I just click the round "X" and dismiss  the sync box.
