BounceKeys aids people who have trouble holding down a key, or who tend to hit a key repeatedly when they mean to press it only once. BounceKeys sets the window system to ignore rapid, repeated pressings of a single key.

Note -

Both SlowKeys and BounceKeys cannot be active at once.

Setting the Debounce Time

The Debounce Time is the interval that must pass before a second pressing of a key is accepted.

You can set this interval with the "Debounce time (sec)" slider. (See Figure B-4.) This delay can range from zero to five seconds.
