  3. Does anyone use voice recognition in conjunction with eye tracking?

    I really need to upgrade my obsolete laptop, but have been procrastinating because I dread switching to NaturallySpeaking. Lately I've been thinking the switch might not be so bad if I had an...

    I use voice recognition. There's a way to move the cursor (the MouseGrid) but I prefer keyboard commands whenever possible. Conversely, people who have trouble using the keyboard are going to...

    People see disability and their common sense deserts them. But when such things happen to me I look at it this way; at least I got a good story out of it!

    Right now Ireland is at the top of my list, but I'd need to very carefully plan everything to make sure I had access to 110v power for my ventilator, plus the usual accessibility stuff. (And, of...

    So my hearing loss due to neuromuscular disease has gotten to the point where I've been prescribed hearing aids, but before giving the audiologist the go-ahead on ITC style aids I wanted to check...

    A few years ago I tried to book a hotel stay in Cooperstown, home of many picturesque old-fashioned (read: not accessible) mom and pop motels. I arrived after a long day of traveling to find hills...

    This probably works better for women, but I make a point of wearing nice shoes. It gives people something to talk/ask me about other than the disability.
