Touch screens and touch computers

Using a computer mouse presents problems for many users with disabilities and learning difficulties. It requires them to understand the relationship between an input device and what is happening on the screen. With a touch screen input this relationship is much more direct making it easier for many especially younger users and those with complex needs. The lower the cognitive load imposed by the access device the more they can concentrate on the activity and learning task.

Touch screens provide this direct and intuitive access to most standard “point and click” software.

Touch monitors are easily added to standard computer systems and come in all sizes up to large classroom sized plasma screens. All-in-one systems are becoming more common, sometimes with specially designed touch software to simplify access to all programs.

The direct simplicity of touch screens is ideal for users with profound and multiple learning difficulties and those with visual impairments providing special software to encourage the development of hand-eye coordination.
