Keystrokes

wfview has keystrokes for almost all commonly-accessed controls one would need to have a QSO or browse the bands.

Not only is this convenient for rapidly manipulating the controls, it also may enable blind operators to use modern touch-screen radios if a computer (or even a Pi) is set up to run wfview in full-screen mode on boot.

Many users may even find that a stand-alone numeric keypad provides sufficient controls (frequency, mode, and tuning are available).

And for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, we’ve also made sure that wfview works well on touchscreen devices. wfview looks great running full-screen on a 10″ touch screen connected to a Raspberry Pi, for example.
