Alt_Key is an application that instantly shows where keyboard accelerators
should go in menu option texts and dialog labels. It is very fast because
it uses the Kuhn-Munkres algorithm, easily outperforming all the naive
The program makes it straightforward for developers to find the right
characters to use as accelerators for menu option texts and for dialog
labels. This helps make GUI programs more usable by catering for users who
can't use the mouse and for fast typists who don't want to use the mouse.
