  1. macrumors newbie

    Hi All,
    I am not a programmer and apologies if this is the wrong place to ask... wasn't sure where to post this.

    I have RSI troubles and am using MacSpeech Dictate for voice commands. It uses Applescripts for custom commands.

    I am wondering if it is possible to make an Applescript that will hold down a chosen modifier key until I tell it to release with another command.

    I need to be able to hold down shift, command, spacebar, option, etc. and then have a 2nd command to release all keys at once.

    Can anyone tell me if this is do-able and maybe point me in the right direction, ie code or resources that would help me understand?
