: I am a 30-year old lady with C.P. and I so some computer work, I can't use the mouse because of my eye-sight and poor coordination. I have learned to use the arrow keys very well.
: I'm looking for a desk-top publishing program that does not use the mouse at all! I can use some of the progarms available to a certain point, but when I want to move a text block or a picture, I can't do it with the arrow keys and that is so frustrating.
: Or is there a mouse that is controlled by the keyboard?
Hi i just found this site while looking for something else. My son is 4 1/2 with spastic quad cp ,and just starting to use computer with big mouse with a big yellow rolling ball on top that moves the arrow keys, this mouse has a switch adapter for his head switch with a magic arm. I took it to his school and his little classmate has trouble with a regular mouse but she can use this one.I don't know if this will help you, they have other stuff too, like big arrows for the computer.
It's all designed for special needs. It looks like i can't list his web site but if you want to email me i can give it to you. I check my e mail every other day or so. Take care.
