NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       accessx  -  A  graphical interface to the AccessX keyboard
       enhancement utility

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       accessx [options]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You can load and save personal default  settings  for  the
       various  AccessX  features.  Specifying  -client instructs
       AccessX to use  your  current  default  AccessX  settings.
       Specifying  -server  instructs  AccessX to use the current
       AccessX system settings. The default is -client.  Specifying
  the  -status  option instructs the AccessX utility to
       automatically pop up the status  window  when  AccessX  is
       started.   Specifying  the  -vmods  option  instructs  the
       AccessX utility to use the names for virtual modifiers  in
       the status window.  For example, when the -vmods switch is
       on, AccessX displays NumLock instead of Mod5.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       AccessX (accessx) is a graphical user  interface  utility.
       The  utility  provides enhancements to the X Window System
       to help users with different  disabilities  interact  with
       workstations. These features make it easier for you to use
       the standard workstation input devices:  the keyboard  and
       the  mouse.   You interact with your workstation as usual,
       by entering commands and  manipulating  menus  and  dialog

       The AccessX keyboard enhancements and corresponding graphical
 interface are available on  any  workstation  running
       the  X  Windows  System  server  that has the XKB keyboard

       AccessX offers the following features:  Lets  you  perform
       multikey  operations with one hand, one finger, or a mouth
       stick.  You can use this feature to enter  uppercase  letters
  or  certain punctuation characters without having to
       hold down the Shift key while pressing the character  key.
       This feature also makes it easier to enter control characters
 such as Ctrl/C.  Lets you use  keys  on  the  numeric
       keypad as well as other keyboard keys instead of the mouse
       to perform input functions such as clicking on objects  or
       moving  the  cursor.   With  this feature, you can use one
       finger or a mouth stick to move the  cursor  to  different
       areas  of  the  screen, manipulate menus, and select, cut,
       and paste text.  Provides audio feedback  when  the  Shift
       Lock  (Caps  Lock) key has been pressed.  This feature can
       help people who might have difficulty seeing the  keyboard
       light  indicator  for Shift Lock or people who are using a
       keyboard that does not provide light  indicators  for  any
       keyboard  settings.   Allows  you  to  adjust how fast the
       auto-repeat keyboard mechanism responds or to turn it  off
       entirely.   With  this feature turned on, you can set your
       keyboard so that holding down a  key  for  a  longer  than
       average  time  does  not  result in a second entry of that
       character.  Makes keys less likely to respond when brushed
       accidentally.   With  this feature turned on, the computer
       accepts only keystrokes that are held for a certain length
       of  time.   The computer ignores light keystrokes that are
       held only for a moment.  Eliminates the problem of  pressing
  a  key and then accidentally pressing it again before
       moving to another key.  You can set this feature  to  tell
       the  computer  not  to  process a second pressing of a key
       unless a certain  length  of  time  elapses  between  each
       pressing.  Shuts off the AccessX features on a workstation
       after a specified period of time has  passed.   With  this
       feature  turned  on,  if you are sharing a workstation and
       have set some AccessX features, the settings are automatically
  turned off before the next person uses the machine.
       To retain your AccessX settings all the time, turn off the
       Time Out feature.

       You can invoke the AccessX utility by entering the accessx
       command or choosing AccessX from the Applications menu  in
       the  Session  Manager.  You  use the AccessX dialog box to
       select and customize the features that you  want  to  set.
       There  is a Features Test area at the bottom of the dialog
       box that allows you to test settings before applying  them
       to your session.


       The  HOME  environment  variable  is  used to identify the
       directory in which to load and save your default settings.
       The  AccessX settings are stored in X resource file format
       in the file $HOME/AccessX. You can modify or add resources
       to this file directly.  Note that any comments are deleted
       when you perform a save settings action.  The format for a
       resource specification in the $HOME/AccessX file is:


       Specifies the resource.  Specifies the value that is to be
       assigned to the resource.

       For details about modifying resources, see the X(1X)  reference

       Because each X Window System toolkit-based application can
       consist of a combination of  widgets  (for  example,  push
       buttons  and  a  scroll bar), you can form the name string
       for a new resource specification by  adding  widget  class
       and  name  identifiers to the string. For further information
 about adding class  and  name  identifiers,  see  the
       X(1X) reference page.

       The  following  sample  shows  a  number  of  the  AccessX
       resources and their default values:

       *EnableAccessXToggle.set:                             True
