The bounce keys feature enables you to customize the keyboard to ignore rapid, repeated keypresses of the same key. For example, users with impaired motor skills might press the same key several times when they intend to press the key once. This feature enables you to customize the keyboard to ignore repeated keypresses.
To enable and configure the bounce keys feature, perform the following steps:
Select the Enable Bounce Keys option.
Use the Ignore keypresses within x msecs slider or spin box to specify the duration after the first keypress for which the system ignores repeated keypresses of the same key. For example, if you select a duration of 500 msecs, the system ignores all repeated keypresses of the same key that occur within 500 msecs of the first keypress.
Select the Beep when key is rejected option to hear an audible indication when the system ignores a key.
If you wish to enable the bounce keys feature, please ensure that the Enable Slow Keys option is deselected. The slow keys feature requires you to press a key for a specified duration before the system accepts the keypress as a valid keypress. If you cannot press the key for the duration that is specified by the slow keys setting, the system does not accept your input unless you deselect the Enable Slow Keys option.
