There is another theme in this blog: Parkinson’s disease. The disease has made it difficult to work with computers, and forced me to investigate technological aids.
I am working on a series of essays focusing on tools to help people with neurological problems deal with computers and their new modes of communication. I will be discussing the costs and benefits of proposed workarounds for difficulties with keyboards and mice, and vocal problems and dictation. The essays should be finished by this summer. Producing them by testing the tools is part of the project. Stand by for bulletins from the front lines.
