But it seems to be quite dead. The last release is about 4 and a half
years old, and the applications (`ax' and its tk interface `accessx')
have some inconveniences that need to be fixed .
I wrote an email to the address listed on that page . If somebody
responses and fixes the issues, it's fine, else the code maybe should be
included back into Xorg and maintained there. At least there has to be
one (command line) tool to manipulate Xorg's accessibility features.
 The config file is ~/AccessX, but ~/.config/AccessX or ~/.AccessX
would be more standard/unobtrusive. And there are options that are
not saved in the config file, thus you have to adjust them on every
