Recently, Microsoft participated in a field hearing held by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. There are critical issues for people with disabilities relating to broadband access. For a description of Microsoft's technology solutions and collaborative approach, please read the blog article, Promoting An Accessibility Ecosystem of Choice and Opportunity.
Imagine my shock when I upgraded to Windows 7. The Onscreen keyboard does not support pressing modifier keys (Ctrl, Alt, Shift) using mouse???? I understand Microsoft is pushing touch everywhere but not everyone has a touch-based PC. In an accessibility tool like Onscreen keyboard, I can't press Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V clicking with my mouse/trackpad? Can MS confirm this?
Appears to be a bug. When click sound is turned on in Onscreen keyboard, modifier keys are no longer sticky when pressing with the mouse. Hotfix coming? Will this be fixed?
Hello. Thanks for reporting this issue you are having. We'd like to email with you about it to find out more about your configuration.
We were not able to reproduce the issue, so we need more information from you. Would you please email "firstname.lastname@example.org" with more details?
Can't send email. Message is returned saying email@example.com address is invalid. Basically, the bug is: When click sound is turned on in Onscreen keyboard, modifier keys such as Alt, Ctrl are no longer sticky when pressing with the mouse. When clicking for example Alt, the key is let go off (2 click sounds are heard) instead of being held down until another key is pressed. This does not happen if "click" sound is off in OSK options.

Can you repro this?
