To Activate the Keyboard Accessibility Options

To activate the keyboard accessibility options, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the Enable keyboard accessibility option.

  2. Select the Beep when enabling/disabling keyboard accessibility features option to receive an audible notification each time a user enables or disables a keyboard accessibility option using the following keyboard shortcuts:

    • Press-and-hold Shift for eight seconds to enable or disable the slow keys feature.

    • Press Shift five times to enable or disable the sticky keys feature.

  3. To automatically disable the keyboard accessibility options if the options are not used for a specified number of seconds, select the Disable if unused for X seconds option. Use the slider to specify the number of seconds of keyboard idle time required before the system disables the keyboard accessibility options.

    This option is intended for computers that are shared by a number of different users, some of whom require the keyboard accessibility options.
