Introduction to the X-Keys and MacroWorks: Shortcuts as Accommodations

On 14 July 2022, I will be leading a workshop on X-Keys customizations at the virtual RESNA Conference.

12:00 - 1:00 pm Eastern time.

Overview: The X-Keys is a programmable keyboard. There are models with four, eight, 16, 24, and more buttons.

MacroWorks is software for programming and driving X-Keys keyboards. Using MacroWorks, an X-Keys can be programmed to type text; record keystrokes; control the mouse; open files, folders, applications, and webpages; and other tasks.

X-Keys is appropriate for people with upper-body disabilities (including individuals with one hand, reduced dexterity, limited reach, or repetitive strain injuries); for people with learning and cognitive disabilities; and perhaps others.

Through lectures, demonstrations, and discussions, learn to select, set-up, and program an X-Keys unit. No programming experience necessary.
