Mouse Alternatives

The mouse and on-screen pointer is the most common way of controlling computer programs. For people who have difficulty using the standard mouse a range of mouse alternatives are available. These alternatives have been developed to help people with disabilities who may not have the required degree of manual dexterity and hand eye co-ordination required to move the pointer or to press the buttons. Different designs of roller-balls, joysticks, mice and ergonomic mice have been produced to meet a variety of needs.

Track balls, roller balls and joysticks are produced with and without keyguards to make accessibility easier for users with conditions such as cerebral palsy and dyspraxia that give rise to motor difficulties.

There are many types of ergonomic mice designed to meet different needs including left-handed use, to help prevent the development of repetitive strain injury.

A single button mouse can help young children and people with severe and complex learning difficulties, autism and ADHD by preventing the problems arising from accidentally pressing the right mouse button.

Some mouse alternatives have built-in controls to help fine tune their operation and the computer accessibility options can also be used to control speed of operation, double-click speed and pointer size.

Touch screen computers and touch monitors can provide easy and intuitive access making them ideal for many users with disabilities.
