Google mostly returns Apple's accessibility API and other programming resources.

But I'd want to know, for example, what is Mac OS X version 10.7.4 equivalent of 'sticky key' in Windows.

Any other productivity tip for using OS X with only one arm?


In System Preferences, click Universal Access then Keyboard:enter image description here

You'll find the options for sticky keys in there.


Something I find very useful when on one arm (and when on two) is these:

  • ctrl-a/e = jump to start/end of line
  • ctrl-j/d = one line up/down
  • ctrl-k = kill line from pointer to end of line
  • ctrl-d = delete

They're maybe more useful if you're using you left arm, since you can then do most of them with your left pinky on ctrl.

For adding custom commands I recommend BetterTouchTool.
