on-screen programmable icons
« on: September 02, 2013, 01:10:22 AM »
Hello,
Hopefully some of the posters here can lead me in the right direction.
As a volunteer, I am putting together some instruction "tutorials" for users with various disabilities.
One of the things I would like to try as an approach is, instead of keyboard shortcuts where a "control " or "command" key needs to be selected along with another key, having the shortcut as a single click icon, maybe in some kind of on-screen toolbar.
As an example, in Photoshop, in order to "deselect" one must 1.)click the toolbar. 2.) scroll down, and 3.) click "deselect", or, a two key combination (as you probably know there are many and often difficult to look up, remember or execute).
Could this (and any selection or keyboard shortcut) be done with a simple single click on a descriptive "icon"?
Skrommel (Mr. Skrommel maybe) had a AHK utility a number of years ago that got close to this effort, however OS's have changed and a very short learning curve is necessary.
Any info about utilities, on-screen programmable icons, or methods that would help develop and hence simplify (especially "art" software which is popular) is appreciated.  Thank you,
NR
