    1. NCATP 2005 Expo COMPUTER ACCESS CONTINUUM North Carolina Assistive Technology Program Ja Medlicott AT Consultant

    2. 3 Continuum Sessions Identification: Basic Computer Access Assessment From 8:30-9:30 Application:AT for Computer Access From 10:00-11:00 Integration:Multiple Technologies Working in Concert From 12:30-3:00

    3. Sessions Break Down Identification: Basic Computer Access Assessment This session will break down the basic domains of computer access. The importance of focusing on a specific desired computer task when assessing will be examined. Compasscomputer access assessment software from Koester Performance Research will be presented. Application:AT for Computer Access This session will present software and hardware applications for computer access. Mouse and keyboards options along with desktop/text enlargement, audio text /navigation, and text/command entry software will be presented. Integration:Multiple Technologies Working in Concert This session will integrate all previous discussed software and peripherals in sessions 1 and session 2 into a” working concert” Mounting devices will be review for switch access and discussed peripherals. Eye-tracking technology from Eye Response Technologies will also be presented by Mel Ellison from Learning Resources Assistive Technologies.

    4. Identification Session 1 Basic Computer Access Assessment First must review “Computer Access”

    5. The Basics ofComputer Access Session 1 • Physical location of the computer • The computer skill level of the individual • To use a computer you need output / input (Need one or more Peripheral) • Know what you want to do on the computer (In measurable and observable terms)

    6. Physical Computer Location Session 1 • Is the computer accessible from a wheelchair? • Is the computer table adjustable? • Is the “CPU” the box on the floor?

    7. Adjustable Computer Table Session 1 A person’s positional needs in computer access should to be reviewed by a PT or OT Assistive technology can help position computer peripherals with mounts and adjustable tables and chairs

    8. The Basics ofComputer Access Session 1 • Physical location of the computer • The computer skill level of the individual • To use a computer you need output / input (Need one or more Peripheral) • Know what you want to do on the computer (In measurable and observable terms)

    9. Computer Skill Level Session 1 AT can not provide computer skills! Desktop / Tool Bar Mouse Cursor /Pointer Keyboard Cursor Icon Window/ Menus Open /Closing File

    10. The Basics ofComputer Access Session 1 • Physical location of the computer • The computer skill level of the individual • To use a computer you need output / input (Need one or more Peripheral) • Know what you want to do on the computer (In measurable and observable terms)

    11. Output Session 1 For an individual to work with a computer they need to “see” or “hear” the desktop or computer screen.

    12. Ways to help to see Session 1 (Get information from the monitor) • Screen Resolution • Increase Icon Size / Font Appearance • Increase Cursor Size • Magnification

    13. Remember there are two types of Output Session 1 For an individual to work with a computer they need to “see” or “hear” the desktop or computer screen.

    14. Ways to “Hear” Monitor Session 1 To help an individual hear a representation of the desktop or to navigate around it. • Text Readers • Screen/Web Readers

    15. The Basics ofComputer Access Session 1 • Physical location of the computer • The computer skill level of the individual • To use a computer you need output / input (Need one or more Peripheral) • Know what you want to do on the computer (In measurable and observable terms)

    16. Input Session 1 Once one has received information from the computer they need to be able to respond Point Select Enter Text

    17. How do we Point? Session 1 A Mouse

    18. Pointing with a Mouse Session 1 In computer access you need to think of moving the mouse cursor not the mouse!

    19. Mouse Cursor Session 1 Think of your mouse cursor as your Pointer!

    20. Other ways to Point Session 1 Options for individuals that can not point with a mouse Mouse Scanning Software ScanBuddy http://www.ahf-net.com/Scanbuddy.htm Gus Scanning Cursor http://www.gusinc.com/scancur.html Can also use Pointing Devices These are hardware devices Jouse2 NaturalPoint HeadMouse HeadMaster Camera Mouse

    21. Input Session 1 Once one has received information from the computer they need to be able to respond. Point Select Enter Text

    22. How do we Select? Session 1 By Clicking!

    23. Mouse Clicking Session 1 A mouse click is nothing more than a switch You are pushing or activating a button to make a selection

    24. Select Session 1 Instead of using a mouse click for a selection you can use a variety of switches To make a selection you point then Click a mouse Push a button/switch Dwell

    25. Dwell? Session 1 Dwell is automatic clicking (or selecting) Software that allows you to aim and (dwell over) a target and select without clicking your mouse or switch

    26. Dwelling Example Session 1

    27. Select Session 1 Dwelling DwellClick http://www.sensorysoftware.com/softwareinfo.html Point-N-Click http://www.polital.com/pnc/ MagicCursor 2000 http://www.madentec.com/

    28. Input Session 1 Once one has received information from the computer they need to be able to respond. Point Select Enter Text

    29. Keyboard Input Session 1 A keyboard is a device that allows one to place text into a target. This is called the keyboard cursor Pointer or mouse cursor

    30. Keyboard Types Session 1 External Keyboard On Screen Keyboards

    31. On Screen KeyboardAccess Methods Session 1 On screen keyboards can be access in three ways Mouse Point and Click Dwelling Scanning

    32. Scanning Method Session 1

    33. Other Text Entry Methods Session 1 Voice to Text Software “Voice Recognition allows a user to use his/her voice as an input device. Voice recognition may be used to dictate text into the computer or to give commands to the computer (such as opening application programs, pulling down menus, or saving work)”

    34. Dasher Session 1 Is a pointing (zooming) text entry interface Software that allows you to point to letters to type.

    35. The Basics ofComputer Access Session 1 • Physical location of the computer • The computer skill level of the individual • To use a computer you need output / input (Need one or more Peripheral) • Know what you want to do on the computer (In measurable and observable terms)

    36. What tasks do they want to accomplish? Session 1 Get on Internet, Read Email, Do my job, Do Homework, Research, Learn, Math, Communicate, Play Games, Make Lists, Banking, Get Pictures, Draw, Make Movies, Design, Create, Listen to Music, Increase Computer Skills.

    37. Must be Specific of the Task Session 1 If someone says “I have trouble using the mouse” Ask in moving the cursor or clicking? If someone says “I have trouble typing” Ask can you not use the keyboard at all or are you not satisfied with words per minute?

    38. Get very specific! Session 1 Example: Typing What are you typing? • Short emails • Data entry • Long paragraphs In what program/s? • Outlook • Excel • Word

    39. What drives AT? Session 1 Assistive technology is driven by the Task not the disability! A person’s disability does help steer a device or program but is not the driving force.

    40. Review So Far Session 1 The Basics in Computer Access Physical Location Computer Skill Level Specific Task Output / Input Point Select Text Entry

    41. Questions Session 1

    42. On to Compass Software Session 1 “ Compass software is a tool for measuring users' skills needed for various kinds of computer interaction.”

    43. KPR Koester Performance Research Session 1 Heidi Horstmann Koester PhD http://www.kpronline.com/

    44. Compass Software Session 1 A Limited amount of CDs are available for Non-Internet Users Only! $179.00

    45. Quick Review of Compass Session 1 The software consists of 8 different skill tests: These tests are divided into 3 areas or “families” Scanning Pointing Text Entry

    46. Skill Test List Session 1

    47. Configuration Session 1 Each test in Compass has configuration components

    48. Switch Test Scan You can use the click of a mouse or a switch of your choice. Evaluates ability to activate a switch when presented a prompt Can set to engaging Way to Go! Visual Auditory

    49. Scan Test Scan Evaluates the ability to use a single switch to make letter choices from a row-column scanning table. Timing Errors Single letter

    50. Aim Test Pointing Evaluates the ability to move a cursor to target and make a selection • Targets • Icons • Pictures • Squares • Selection Method • Click • Double Click • Dwell
