    Playing Bridge on line

    My wife really enjoys playing bridge and despite only being able to use the knuckle of one hand is still able to play online bridge ( Bridgebase) using an Ipad

    Does anybody know how she could continue playing online bridge once she has to use eye gaze to point to things on a screen rather than using her knuckle

    I think this might be something for Ellie to help with, she is the font of most technical knowledge

      Graham500 A warm welcome to the forum, Graham.

      I've just tested using my eye gaze in Bridge Base and I'm happy to report that it worked for me (on my Windows laptop), not that I knew what I was doing mind you, but I turned over cards and they moved to the centre of the table.

      Love Ellie xx

        That's wonderful!! My mum played online bridge until her MND was very advanced, and it was an absolute lifeline for her and bought joy in the midst of hardship. She said it was the one time in her day she felt she could forget she had MND. Well done Ellie for finding out if the technology works. You are awesome!!

        Graham, I hope your wife continues with her bridge playing and that the eye gaze works well for her.

        All the best, Deborah

              So does this mean there is going to be a MND bridge tournament?

              It would be way above me.

              Respect to all you bright people out there.

              Did really like Nomination Whist as a child. It would go on for days.

              Yes pencil and paper for the scores. Real cards and people.
