Typematic Delay

This setting controls the automatic repeat capability of your keyboard. Usually specified in milliseconds, this controls how long a key must be held down before it begins automatically repeating. Typical settings are usually somewhere between 200 and 1000 milliseconds. Use what feels comfortable. See also "Typematic Rate".

Note: Some higher-end keyboards have the equivalent function built-in.

Warning: Setting this too low can cause the keyboard to repeat keys during normal typing, which can appear to be "keyboard bounce" and imply a hardware problem with the keyboard to the casual user.
