Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Horace, and I live in the midwestern United States, Chicago, Illinois.
Over the last several years I developed neurological disorders which significantly limit my ability to use my hands, and I am trying to become more functional with hands-free devices and technology.
I’m hoping anyone can provide helpful feedback on how I should go about learning how to get better with using mouthsticks and other devices which make it easier to use the computer and manipulate objects such as paper, magazines, books, etc. without using my hands.
Also any links, associations, people, and companies that would further my goal to become as functional as possible without using my hands would be most helpful.
FYI: I am typing this letter with the following assistive technology: a foot operated mouse, Windows On-Screen Keyboard, keyboard mouthstick, a headset microphone and Dragon NaturallySpeaking. (Each assistive technology has its pluses and minuses.)
Thanks in advance,
