KDE Accessibility is a set of assistive technologies for the KDE desktop. It currently consists of three applications: KMagnifier, KMouseTool, and KMouth. 'kmousetool' clicks the mouse for you, so you don't have to. It works with any mouse or pointing device. The amount of time it waits before it clicks is adjustable, of course, and is by default just half a second. KMouseTool can also drag the mouse. 'KMagnifier' is a screen magnifier. It magnifies the area around the mouse pointer or optionally a user-defined area. Additionally it offers to save the magnified screen shots to disk. 'KMouth' lets people who have lost their voice make their computers speak for them. It has a text input field and speaks the sentences that you enter. It also has support for user-defined phrase books.
