SecureCRT to SendKeys with Python

As checked the help file , with python, can not send a key to the screen.

I am using python2.7.15.
What can I alternatively do to send the ^C(which is supposed to be CTRL+C) to the screen with python?

Sends key strokes to the active window.
The SendKeys method can send more than one keystroke at a time by using compound string arguments. For example, to send the keystrokes a, b, and c, you would send the string argument "abc". The SendKeys method also uses some characters as modifiers of characters. This set of special characters consists of the plus sign (+), caret (^), percent sign (%), tilde (~), parentheses, brackets, and braces. The characters "+", "^", and "%" perform the functions of SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT, respectively. These can be combined to affect one key as in "^%c" which is the equivalent of the CTRL+ALT+C key combination. Parenthesis characters are used to group characters for modifiers, for example, "+(ec)" will send "EC". SendKeys can use up to three nested parenthesis.

To send bracket characters, send the string argument "{[}" for the left bracket and "{]}" for the right one. To send brace characters, send the string argument "{{}" for the left brace and "{}}" for the right one.

Some keystrokes do not generate characters (such as ENTER and TAB). Some keystrokes represent actions (such as BACKSPACE and BREAK). To send these kinds of keystrokes, send the arguments shown in the SendKeys keystroke table.
object.SendKeys string
#$language = "VBScript"
#$interface = "1.0"
Sub Main()
crt.Sleep 2000
crt.Sleep 2000
crt.Sleep 2000
crt.Sleep 2000
End Sub
SendKeys is not currently supported for Python.
