I’ve been using the free RS DesignSpark software for a long time but would seriously like to use KiCad, however being paralysed from the neck down and using a headmouse and an onscreen keyboard (WiVik) on Windows 7, I’m finding the software essentially unusable and very inaccessible.
For example, in the Page Layout Editor it is impossible to edit any text. If I select some text to edit then try to use my onscreen keyboard (other onscreen keyboards suffer the same problem) it looses focus and becomes impossible to edit. This is the only program I’ve experienced in many years that does this. The effectively renders the program useless to me.
KiCad’s heavy use of keystrokes is also a pain as I often rely on toolbar buttons for simple tasks such as cut and paste etc., which seem conspicuous by their absence, unless of course I can’t find where they are, which is also highly plausible
The absolute killer though is the system’s apparent inability to place nicely with an onscreen keyboard as far as I can determine, unless I’m missing something and somebody could point me in the right direction?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much in anticipation.
