Product Description: 

One Switch Mouse is a free program that enables users to control the mouse pointer using a single switch. The technique used is particularly suited to users who have good fine motor control, but poor gross motor control, such as people with a progressive muscle wasting disease like Duchenne muscular dystrophy or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease).

Main Features: 

  • Enables users to control the mouse pointer on a Windows machine using the most limited option possible, one single key or mouse button or customized switch or joystick button.
  • Users can move the mouse anywhere, click, double-click, right-click, and even drag-to-select.
  • It can be used to control other applications, such as web browsers or media players, and use an on-screen keyboard to type.
  • Suitable for people who have reasonable timing on their limited movement (i.e. they can control how long they hold down a switch).
  • Suitable for people who are cognitively normal and can operate a standard Windows computer, or have a carer who can combine the program with some appropriate software.
  • Works on the Windows log-in screen and the secure desktop (the User Access Control screen).
  • Compatible with any third-party on-screen keyboard, and comes with its own one.
  • Use keys, mouse keys or joystick buttons (switch controls) to operate the mouse control.
  • Adjust sensitivity and speed for the mouse pointer.
  • The mouse pointer will accelerate so the user can traverse the screen quickly.
  • Sounds as the user operates the mouse pointer helps them control the mouse.
  • Crosshairs help the user follow the mouse location and line up the mouse for movement.

Primary Specifications: 

  • Runs on Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 8 or Windows 10. 32- or 64-bit versions are all supported.
