Can DigiKeyboard hold a shift key down?
« on: August 29, 2015, 07:55:46 pm »
I'm a Newbie when is comes to using DigiKeyboard. I would like to mimic holding down a shift key. The reason is that there is a PC puppet app that uses the shift key to open the puppets mouth. Rather than be tied to a keyboard whilst trying to sync key presses with speaking, I thought it would be interesting to try an create a micro switch controlled prosthesis that can take mouth/jaw movement and translate it to the required shift key behavior. The key to this is that a mouth held open should keep the puppet's mouth open as well. Thoughts? Is DigiKeyboard capable of emulating a held shift key?

I haven't tried this myself - check the samples?  But generally the modifier keys accompany each transmitted key - and the key up & down are separate events AFAIK.
