Re: Trouble With Right Alt+Arrow Keys
A sighted person may say they are not sure why Microsoft has Narrator. Sticky keys is just as important for accessibility to a person who has only one hand as a screenreader is for us blind people. How, for example, would somebody who has only one hand quickly do upper case letters or press shortcut keys involving Shift, Control and Alt? Sticky keys allows them to press shift as as the name describes, it “sticks” until the next letter is pressed.

I'm not sure why they have "Sticky Keys" either.

In the UK, the RIGHT ALT key, is a combinedALT+CTRL key. Being used to having an ALT on either side of the space bar, I always have a problem using a UK keyboard, because I have to keep remembering to move my right thumb to the left ALT key, in order to perform commands related to the left hand, for example, ALT+F and ALT+W, etc.
I would like to meet the idiots, who came up with that idea.
The question I have to ask, if two keys are to be combined on one key, then, what is the point of having a feature in Windows called "Sticky Keys".
