KeyCue 4.1 keyboard shortcut cheat sheet now with large-print themes

Hagenberg, Austria: February 19, 2008 — Ergonis Software today
released KeyCue 4.1, the company’s popular keyboard shortcut cheat

KeyCue 4.1 adds two high-contrast large-font themes to make KeyCue
even more helpful for visually impaired users. The new version also
offers an automatic update checking system, which ensures timely
access to updates for future versions.

“I’m thrilled that KeyCue will now be more accessible to low vision
users. When you have low vision, using a keyboard shortcut is often
vastly easier than finding an item on a menu, but learning keyboard
shortcuts can be harder than usual. The keyboard shortcuts are printed
*in* the menu items so if you have trouble reading the menu items then
you’ll have trouble reading the shortcuts to learn them,” said Ricky
Buchanan, founder and operator of “Now that KeyCue bypasses
that problem by having high-contrast large-font views available,
things will be much easier for Mac OS X users with low vision.”

“We love to innovate and to offer new unique features to our products.
But we also carefully listen to our customers’ feedback and
requirements. The new themes for vison-impaired users were mainly
inspired by Ricky Buchanan from ATMac,” said Christoph Reichenberger,
founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. “We are grateful to Ricky for
making us see these requirements and hope that the new themes will
help vison-impaired users to make better use of keyboard shortcuts.”

The productivity paradox of keyboard shortcuts is that shortcuts were
designed to increase productivity. However, productivity actually
decreases when applications provide large numbers of shortcuts, in
particular when the shortcuts are defined inconsistently across
applications. KeyCue’s elegantly simple solution is to detect and
display an instant overview of all shortcuts, i.e., the overall
functionality of any application. Over time, KeyCue users will
automatically remember frequently used shortcuts and start working
more efficiently.

KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award
from MacWorld magazine.
