Assisting People with Multiple Disabilities to Improve Computer Typing Efficiency through a Mouse Wheel and On-Screen Keyboard Software
This study aims to find out if the two students with multiple disabilities can learn to use standard keyboard and computer mouse with the intervention of newly developed software. With built-in On-Screen Keyboard (OSK), the user can key in commands by using a standard mouse. Without changing the conventional computer mouse and outward appearance, a new mouse driver program was designed, of which the scroll wheel became a key to quickly click on OSK. With this design, students with multiple disabilities can complete the task fast and correctly by sliding the mouse wheel.
