ACCESSX(1)							    ACCESSX(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     accessx - GUI to set keyboard features for	movement-impaired users

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The accessx graphical interface allows movement-impaired users to set and
     activate special keyboard features.  It uses the XKB extension built into
     the X server in IRIX 6.2 and later	releases.

     The accessx panel can be run from a Unix shell command line or from the
     toolchest (Desktop	> Customize > Accessibility).  Like most other IRIX
     Interactive Desktop (IID) customization panels, accessx has the
     ``runonce'' feature, meaning only one instance of the application will
     run at one	time.  Attempting to launch the	application a second time will
     have the effect of	deiconifying the application window or popping it to
     the top on	the current desk.

     The accessx software has a	main Status window and an accompanying
     Settings window.  The following special keyboard features are

     MouseKeys turns the user's	keyboard number	pad into a pointer controller,
     enabling the user to move the pointer without the mouse.

     BounceKeys	makes the keyboard ignore spurious extra presses of a key.

     StickyKeys	causes modifier	keys such as Shift, Ctrl, and Alt to latch and
     affect the	next key pressed, such that modifier keys and other keys may
     be	pressed	in sequence instead of simultaneously.

     SlowKeys makes the	keyboard ignore	spurious presses of other keys on the
     way to a target key.

     RepeatKeys	lets the user toggle whether held keys are acknowledged
     repeatedly	or just	once.

     For full usage instructions, see the Accessibility	Software Help.	The
     help may be installed from	accessx.books.AccessX_Help.

     Users can define and save groups of settings as profiles.	These profiles
     are saved in each user's $HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/accessx	directory.  If
     this directory is not readable and	writable, then the user	may still set
     and activate customized settings, but they	will not be remembered across
     login sessions.

AVAILABILITY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The accessx graphical user	interface uses the XKB extension built into
     the X server in IRIX 6.2 and later	releases.  The accessx product ships
     with IRIX 6.5.  In	the future, it may also	ship as	a patch	for IRIX 6.2.

     helpful conversations.
