Alternative Access

If you find the standard keyboard, mouse or touchscreen difficult or impossible to use, Access Technologies provide an alternative way to control a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Alternative access technologies are helpful for people with physical support needs who require adjustments and/or different interfaces to control technology.

Alternative access technologies include:

  • eye-gaze
  • switches
  • joysticks and trackballs
  • trackpads
  • large & compact keyboards
  • and much more.

Access technologies can be used in the way that works best for the individual and operated by hand, foot, head, mouth, single finger or even using your eyes.

Modern mainstream technologies have built-in accessibility tools and so it's worth reviewing these to see what's already available to you.
