The SGI AccessX graphical interface lets movement-impaired users set and activate the following five special keyboard features:

  • 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. The SGI AccessX status window updates in real time to give feedback whenever the user presses, latches (holds down), and releases the mouse button and modifier keys.

AccessX has a new feature to enable the Motif Accessability Module (MAM). The MAM enables any Motif application to become Section 508 aware. SGI ships a default configuration for Motif acessability. Order the MAM inspector license to customize the level of accessability added to Motif applications.
