Imagine having to control everything you want using only a light switch. That is the situation of many persons with severe physical disabilities that cannot type on a keyboard, move a mouse or speak to a voice assistant like Alexa. They can just press one switch or button with their foot, their hand, their chin or their head.
In this article, we are going to talk about how persons with disabilities can use Mouse4all together with a switch to access any app on their smartphone or tablet. This article is based on the excellent guide “Switch access to technology” written by David Colven and Simon Judge of the ACE Centre (you need to register, but it is free to download).
