Point-n-Click vs Keyboard Navigation

We're contemplating a switch from Symix character-based ERP to Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.  The users are probably going to have a cow when they find out how slow it is to navigate with a mouse compared to the old way of using the keyboard.  Is it possible to access most Oracle Supply Chain and Manufacturing transactions using keystroke sequences instead of pointing and clicking?

Oracle E-Business-Suite is based on Oracle Forms.
Oracle Forms has keystroke navigation and possibly you have to
study it as alternative.

Nevertheless the functionality of EBS is intended to be used via browser
and mouse clicks.

I hope your customer will soon encounter the advantages of working
with up to date peripheral devices ...

In case anyone is interested, it turns out that eveything you can do with the mouse in Oracle E-Business Suite can also be done faster using keyboard shortcuts, which are identified by an Underscore on each File Menu item.  (Every button has a corresponding place in the File Menu).  You can also move between tabs and close forms using keyboard shortcuts - for a list of shortcuts available at any time, press CTRL-K.  

This allows much faster processing of high volume transactions.
