SILKey (Experimental)

Current version: 1.2, released March 1998

SILKey is a suite of programs that can be used to modify the behavior of the Macintosh keyboard when typing in any standard Macintosh word processor or other text-editing program. Written by Jonathan Kew, it is very similar to, but is not based on, the KeyMan program for Windows.
