AutoHotkey

www.autohotkey.com

This is an open-source utility for Windows.  You can use AutoHotkey to do a number of things that simplify tasks but I find the following to the ones that are the most useful to persons who are adapting their computer input. 

Abbreviation Expansion:  By writing a script in Notepad, you can create an abbreviation that expand and thus save you keystrokes. This function is quite helpful in situations like passwords on the Internet, typing your long email address into a form, or reproducing any kind of “boilerplate” text that you use frequently. 

Key remapping:  Using AutoHotkey you can “remap” any key on the keyboard.  For example, the Windows Logo key to the right of the space bar could be changed so that it is now the Escape key.  For example, this would be a great help for a user who is not able to get to the regular ESC key.

Hotkeys:  This utility can be used to create hotkeys to perform any number of tasks, for example open a specific web site.  Hotkeys can be made to be almost any combination of a key or button.   The hotkey could also run programs, produce pages of text, etc.

It takes some tech savy to use this program. There are tutorials availabe on this website about the download and install of the program as well as how to script AutoHotkey.
