First, my name is Richard, I'm a middle-aged IT guy and I've got a problem. I guess I feel the need to announce the IT part because I have degree in an IT field and I know my way around the computer. I just haven't been able to figure this one out on my own so I'm asking for help. Also, to explain the disabled part, I was in a motor vehicle accident little over 2 1/2 years ago and I became a quadriplegic as result of it. I've got one bum arm that I can slightly move and one good one with about normal range. I just can't hold up over my head. Also I cannot move my fingers. So I use several things to help me. One is a cuff that I wrap around my hand. It has a little pocket that I put a capacitive stylus. To aid in long passages of text like now and to help with overall use of the computer I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking and a headset. Now that that's all the way out of the way.
As soon as I was able to get back to my laptop and I started poking around with all the accessibility settings find sticky keys to be particularly useful. It helps me capitalize letters and commands. Because of all this items able to play some PC games, albeit slowly, but surely! So I got myself a copy of No Man's Sky. Everything was going great until I realized it required me to hold down certain keys on the keyboard and it turns out sticky keys does not work in game. To make matters worse I have to hold down certain keys to do certain things.
Can anyone think of a way that I can designate certain keys to click and hold? So that I can regain both the sticky keys function and extend that to various keyboard keys.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
