Would this keyboard help?
I'm physically disabled and type with a stick in my mouth. The OLPC is my first and only experience with Linux.Thanks need to go out to Eden, Moocapiean, and LesleyT, as all three rose to the challenge and are activity searching for a solution to Tacotaxi's need for one finger typing.
I did find and successfully complete simple instructions on changing nickname on my OLPC. In doing so, somebody had to hold the shift key for the quotes. How can I set up OLPC for one finger typing as in Windows? I need to be able to hit Ctrl+Alt+Erase one key at a time.
If you have any simple instructions for this elderly physically challenged wanna be geek, I will be eternally grateful. At my age I try and stick with the KISS rule... no insult intended. Thank you.
Eden and Moocapiean worked the software angle - they started with the OLPC Wiki on Accessibility and tested different software to give tacotaxi a one-step solution - AccessX. LesleyT is taking a different, more physical angle:
I'm wondering about the physical act of pressing all the buttons at the same time and what could be done hardware-wise. I ask this because I'm trying to envision some sort of quick fix (like a keyboard attachment that physically holds down the needed key) as these guys do the software.If you too can help out, join the Assistive Technology Group on the OLPC News Forum and add to the OLPC Wiki on Accessibility.
