Re: VIBS 10key pad

I understand that these are not off the shelf items, however, it doesn't appear to work at all. Am I doing something wrong?  Why does it cancel the ballot no matter what number I hit.  I've tried toggling the Num Lock button but that doesn't seem to do anything.

We are aware that it needs to be presented in the phone keypad orientation, but we had to rush to get you a keypad for demonstration.  We can have not been able to find one in the phone orientation at all of the local places, ie Best Buy, CompUSA etc.

The 10 key pad we are looking for is for ADA compliance with a phone keypad with raised bump on 5.  I'm sure you are aware of this.  The unit recieved is a 10 keypad off a computer keyboard, with keys laid out in different config.

The 10-keypad I received on Saturday for our demonstration at the Secretary of State's Technology day arrived.  I tested it this AM.  Each time I place a vibs voter card into the machine and respond to a candidate position - it CANCELs the ballot.  This does not appear to lend itself to a demonstration.  Are there some special instructions I'm missing?  We've got to have a working 10 key pad for this week and next.
