Abstract
The system proposed in this effort will allow the handicapped individual with hand/arm motor impairment to use the computer and access digital libraries on the Internet and in internal networks in a more effective manner. Furthermore, the system allows full use of the actual keyboard and mouse so that terminals enabled with the proposed software are still useful for the general public. Because of supporting internal IR&D, in Phase I we will create a complete pre-production prototype and Cybernet will initially provide this system free of charge for download from NASA digital library sites (as a NASA public service to the profoundly handicapped).
