    Mapping keyboard keys to mouse buttons
    Hello

    I've had a request from a 2 year old disabled girl who would like to play Flash games designed for children with disabilities.

    The problem is that these games are designed to use input fed through to the space and enter keys, but her accessibility hardware can't do this, it sends a mouse click instead.

    Is there any way on a Mac to map the space bar to a mouse click? I've had a look in the keyboard and mouse settings but there doesn't appear to be anything in there, I'm no Mac expert though.

    If it is not possible within the OS, is it possible via third party software? I know of several PC applications that can do this (eg. Error 404 - Page Not Found, but can't find any for the Mac.

    Please let me know if you can help so we can put a smile back on her face!
