    Graham, I use a Tobii gaming eye tracker, which is very responsive, and found excellent mouse open source software on GitHub. I found the assistive tech offerings too slow and didn't give me access to all areas of my PC.

    I often free type faster with the open source keyboard, which has customisable speed settings etc, and can move. It might be OK to write code with, IDK.

    Maybe it's not for now, but it's something to bear in mind for the future.

    Love Ellie.

      Thanks for the excellent advice Ellie. Definitely something to do later on. Yes, you're right, the standard offerings work to an extent but not well, hence my frustration with the forum.

      Your prolific typing on this forum suggests that the investment is well worth it.

      Love Graham

        My problem is not keyboards but my fingers. I don't think anyone can help me with that.😄

          My Samsung phone has been playing up and in the interest of compatibility I decided to get an iPhone as my other devices are Apple. When setting it up I somehow managed to magnify the screen. Despite watching numerous YouTube videos on how to get back to normal I couldn’t do it because it requires a 3 finger successive tap and my fingers are reluctant to work which is why I type with 1 finger and rely on predictive text. My friendly postman who checks in on me every day managed to sort it for me and I will resist fiddling with the settings from now on.
          I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

            No, nobody can fix your fingers but thankfully that doesn't mean you can't type or use a PC. Don't despair Sweetie 🤗🤗
