One Switch Mouse enables a user to control the mouse pointer using a single switch. This technique is particularly suited to users who have good fine motor control, but poor motor control; for example, people with muscular dystrophy. Coupling One Switch Mouse with Oska On-Screen Keyboard offers the user the ability to control the mouse and write. With practice, we have seen this technique being used to control a mouse at high speeds.
One Switch Mouse requires the use of only one switch or button to give the user complete control of the mouse. One Switch Mouse also allows the application to be setup in a way that suits the end-user requirements. As well as controlling the speed and acceleration of the mouse movement, the input device (`switch?) that is used to control the mouse movement can be altered. The `switch? used to control One Switch Mouse can be either the `space bar? (or a switch controller box which emulates the space bar), the middle mouse button, or joystick/gamepad button 1 or 2.
