//Today all three desktop OSes (Windows, Mac, and UNIX) provide MouseKeys
functionality that allows any user who can press a single key on the keypad
to move the mouse. Is this reasonable and sufficient? Or should we
actually require that every software application provide mouse movement
alternatives for moving things like spray cans in painting programs?//
Personally in Windows I find it impossible to turn on shift w/ sticky keys
(for drawing a horizontal line in Paint), pressing numpad 5 to left click
and then press an arrow key to move in a direction. Perhaps I'm missing a
way to lock the left button. My point being though, it can be difficult to
do this and we don't know if all Operating systems have equivalent mouse key
