Incorporating Compass Computer Access Assessment software, Computer Access for People with Disabilities: A Human Factors Approach provides the information clinicians need to know in order to provide effective alternative computer access solutions to individuals with disabilities. Originally developed for a masters-level course on computer access for rehabilitation engineers and rehabilitation counselors, it provides practical guidance on how to provide computer access services and sufficient background knowledge to allow the reader to interpret the research literature.

  • Presents technology for individuals with physical, cognitive, and sensory impairments, and for older adults
  • Covers text entry devices, pointing devices, switch access, automatic speech recognition, and web accessibility
  • Emphasizes fundamental concepts and principles that remain true regardless of which specific operating system or product is being used
  • Draws on research from the fields of rehabilitation engineering, occupational therapy, and human-computer interaction (HCI)
