How-to: Add or Remove Accessiblity Icon

At some point I must have run an Ubuntu install and checked an Universal Access setting which put the  Accessibility icon in my notifications area. It's an icon you can't right-click to turn off.

This is part of the current wonderful inconsistency in Ubuntu which Mark S is gradually working through.

You may not like his approach, but by the end it will be consistent...

Meanwhile, to add or remove the "universal access" icon from the notification area, either Alt+F2 to run:
gnome-keyboard-properties
Or through the menu's: System > Preferences > Keyboard

Under the Accessibility tab, un/check the box that says "Accessibility features can be toggled with keyboard"

The Accessibility icon should appear/disappear right away.  RC
