Learning to use a mouse - Inclusive Technology software

Finding the right device is only part of the process of helping someone access the computer. Mouse and mouse alternative use involves a considerable degree of motor skills, perceptual skills, the ability to relate the operation of the device to what is happening on the screen and having motivating software.

The Inclusive Technology program Mouse Skills has been designed to help beginners develop mouse skills from simple control of the pointer movement through to full control of all the mouse functions. The principle of learning each operation one step at a time with a very easy to understand activity works well for all aspects of computer accessibility.

The settings in the program for contrast and colour and size of the mouse pointer make it ideal for users with visual difficulties.

The accessibility options in the Windows and Mac systems allow for settings of speed of movement and pointer size and type to chosen to suit the user.

Other programs that can help with mouse skills include the Target and Touch Range, the Lets Go series, SwithcIT programs and Choose and Tell. These programs offer a visual and some an auditory prompt when the mouse pointer passes over an active area encouraging the user to click for a response.
