A friend has this problem with an elderly relative. This may not be connected but she was trying to shop with a supermarket online and since then certain letters have been replaced by numbers when she types.

We can deduce that :Scan60etn5ng has g6ne

should read : something has gone

Not seen this before , does anyone have an idea.

You probably have number lock on.

Hold down shift and hit the key that says "NumLk" or similar

I suspect that the problem is with a laptop computer and that the numeric keypad function has been turned on. Might I suggest that they read the manual to find out how to turn it off and then the problem will disappear.

Sorry I can not be more specific about how to turn it off as it usually is different on most laptops.
