Using a Mac - Keyboard/Mouse Assistance --------------------------------------------------------------------- For people who might have a little trouble using the keyboard or mouse, Mac has created a few options to make life easier. To access these features, open System Preferences under the Apple icon in the top menu bar and click on Universal Access. At the top of this window are tabs for various functions and devices: Seeing, Hearing, Keyboard and Mouse.? Click on Keyboard. The first option is called Sticky Keys. This option is used for users who have difficulties pressing more than one key at a time. It basically sets the computer so that instead of having to press multiple keys at the same time, you can just press one key and it will be recognized as remaining pressed. If you turn Sticky Keys On, you can adjust the settings that follow. Slow Keys is another option for users who have difficulty with pressing the keys fast enough. Turn this On to have your computer recognize a slower key rate input speed. Now, click on the Mouse tab. The first option, turning the Mouse Keys On, gives you the ability to use the keyboard in place of the mouse. If you decide to turn this option On, you'll need a keyboard with a numeric keypad. The buttons to use to control the mouse are 1-9. 7, 8 and 9 control upward movement. 4 and 6 control left and right movement. 1, 2 and 3 control downward movement. 5 acts as a mouse click. You can also control the Cursor Size, Maximum Speed of the mouse pointer and the amount of Initial Delay, which it takes for the mouse pointer to react to your key press.
