    Talking how do I use the shift key on osx's on screen keyboard?
    I want to know because i have a mac by my bed without a keyboard and when you hold the shift key the letters change but as soon as you release the key it goes off of caps and i need shift to do symbols like @.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    You need to turn on Sticky-Keys in System Preferences > Universal Acces > Keyboard

    Hope this helps

    Not too sure why it is not working for you, tried it here and it works fine for me.
