Electronic Pointing Devices
Electronic pointing devices allow the user to control the cursor on the screen using ultrasound, an infrared beam, eye movements, nerve signals, or brain waves. When used with an on-screen keyboard, electronic pointing devices also allow the user to enter text and data. Example: Electronic pointing devices might look a bit like something from the space age, but the technology is life-changing for people with little or no mobility. Take the case of Vanya, a teenager with a traumatic brain injury. Vanya’s ocular movement was tracked and registered. She is now able to use a device that lets her interact with her computer, and thereby control her environment, solely with eye movement.
