Anyone playing online and video games who doesn't have the option of using hand or voice controls?

Jeff used to be a keen player of World of Warcraft but had to give up as his MND left him without the use of his arms and dependent full time on his NIV.

If you have got around this problem or know of any sites that offer advice, please let me know.

Best wishes to all.

Hi Alan,

I don't know if this thread has anything which might help, but it is a problem that other people come across on various platforms. Fingers crossed you can find a solution from someone.

Hi Robyn,

Thanks for the link, I've taken a quick look and it appears the forum members found a device specific to the PS3 that aided lack of dexterity in the hand but still required hand movement/control. The other adaptive aid required voice control. I suppose in Jeff's case we're looking at a head or chin control, but you're right I wouldn't be surprised if another forum user has a solution.

Regards,
