|My-T-Soft® TS: for Windows; Indestructible Keyboards and Indispensable Utilities; Version 1.80; User's Guide|
|Prev||Chapter 7. Advanced User Notes||Next|
My-T-Soft TS WAS NOT intended to emulate the Windows keyboard interface in its entirety. Although My-T-Soft TS appears to operate just as the keyboard does, due to its design, certain applications may not function properly with My-T-Soft TS. Special software considerations have been made to make My-T-Soft TS as flexible as possible, and the notes below offer information on configuration settings that may make My-T-Soft TS work within your applications. Also below is a complete discussion of settings, options, and possible solutions to any incompatibilities.
My-T-Soft TS WAS intended to make certain operations easier because the user can concentrate on the task at hand, not which input device is required at the moment.
My-T-Soft TS allows the user to keep their eyes on the screen, so the flow of work on a computer is uninterrupted. In essence, My-T-Soft TS is just a standard Windows application that provides special functionality.
When asked "How do I do a right-click from My-T-Soft TS?" we try to be patient and explain that My-T-Soft TS is a text input tool, and not a pointing device. The touchscreen / pen interface replaces the desktop mouse as the pointing device, and My-T-Soft TS replaces the physical keyboard. You need a pointing device to work with My-T-Soft TS, and if you can't perform a right-click with your pointing device, you need to talk to the pointing device vendor for options (or refer to IMG's TouchRight Utilities which provides right-click options & tools for pointing devices). Also note there are keyboard short-cuts/options that can be used via My-T-Soft TS to possibly resolve the underlying access issue - Shift-F10 will open the context menu (or the Properties key on the 104 layouts) which often is what people want when asking about the right-click action. Finally, look at a standard physical keyboard, and find the right-click button - it isn't there (unless the keyboard has some sort of pointing device capability).
