    Laptop trackpad

    My employer recently ordered new laptops (HP) with trackpads. I use a mouthstick modified with conductive foam that has allowed it to work with smart phones and my iPad. Any reason why is does not work in this instance?

    NL has a MacBook Pro. It has a track pad and the problem I have with using my hand device with a conductive foam tip is the various movements needed to perform certain tasks, i.e., scroll takes a two finger action. while a one finger action controls the cursor. There are other gestures that require more dexterity and different finger combinations. There may be some Accessibility preferences in you system preferences that you could use. I've never really investigated the scope of those features.

    I’ve tried everything, but it won’t recognize the mouthstick.
