FilterKeys instructs your keyboard to ignore brief or repeated keystrokes. You can also adjust the keyboard repeat rate, which is the rate at which a key repeats when you hold it down.

ToggleKeys instructs your computer to play a high sound when the CAPS LOCK, SCROLL LOCK, or NUM LOCK key is switched on and a low sound when any of those keys are switched off.

SoundSentry instructs your computer to flash part of your screen every time the system's built-in speaker plays a sound. You can specify which part of the screen flashes by clicking Settings.

ShowSounds instructs programs that usually convey information only by sound also to provide all information visually, such as by displaying text captions or informative icons.

Display
High Contrast Instructs programs to change the color scheme to the one specified in the Settings dialog box instead of using program-specific colors, and to increase legibility whenever possible.

MouseKeys enables you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click, and drag.
