MacBook inserting numbers while typing.

My roommate's MacBook has suddenly started inserting certain numbers behind certain letters while she's typing (and vice versa).

She's not accidentally hitting number keys, and the letter/number pairings are consistently the same; whenever she types b, it's followed by 5, and likewise for c/3, m/7, n/6, v/4, x/2, z/1, comma(,)/9 and period(.)/0. The reverse happens when typing numbers (5 is automatically followed by a b, etc.). This is a 2013 MacBook running OS X 10.8.5. Is there some sort of numeric keypad emulator mode that accidentally got switched on? If so, how to turn it off? Or is this a hardware issue? Or something else entirely?
