This computer forum is a great idea http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif
I was wondering if anyone knows a good keyboard that doesn't cost a bunch of cash but can be used by a person with limited movement? I use a mouthstick to operate my computer and the keyboard has a built in track ball. It needs replacing and was wondering if there are any websites featuring keyboards for the disabled that I can browse around??
I will provide you with a link and you can look at some of the keyboards that are being used by members of this forum.

scroll down a little further and you will come to a thread titled "How do you type?". Let me know if this helps and perhaps, some of the members may have some other suggestions.

I am a C-5, C-6 complete, and the keyboard that works best for me, is on that web site posted down below.
It is the one with the touchpad built into it. It works great for me, and I would recommend it to anybody who is a quadriplegic and can move their arms.
I've tried those trackballs when I was in rehab, but I never liked them so I went on the Web and found that web site and ordered the one with the touchpad built into the keyboard.
So far I've never had any problems with it, and I've had it for a bout a year and a half now.
If you are still looking that is the one I would recommend for you.

Keyboard info revisited need Help;
Can some of you fellow gimps here take a look at the
webpage and the keyboards you use tell me which models have the drag lock feature for the trackball please???
Since I type with a moutstick I need this feature and my old no longer made keyboard is crapping out.
If you are using Windows there is a "Click Lock" feature which may resolve the issue of being able to "drag lock" if you enable it. Just go to "Start," "Settings," "Control Panel," "Mouse," and look for the "Buttons," tab and turn on "Click Lock."
I use the Kensington Expert Mouse with a large trackball.
