There are multiple reasons why an individual may desire to be hands-free when using the computer. An individual may experience arthritis in the wrists that is worsened by the overuse of typing and mouse navigation; an individual may experience limited dexterity in the fingers which makes keying slow, difficult or painful; an individual may even simply prefer to speak instead of type or move their head instead of navigating with a mouse – whatever the experience or desire, there are options for the use of Assistive Technology!
