lr-theodore uses the standard Retroarch input configuration, with the addition of a virtual keyboard when a keyboard is not present.
Start Program simulates one or several keystrokes on the keyboard to start a game. This feature allows to start most games without the need for a keyboard. The key depends on the loaded media and of the current computer emulated.
