SmartNav & Voice Recognition
SmartNav users have many options when it comes to performing mouse clicks. Choosing between ability switches, Dwell Click software, or Voice Clicking is determined based on ability, preference and the applications being used. Often a combination of tools is the best
solution for efficiency and long-term comfort.
ViaVoice® Option: For SmartNav users that are able to speak mouse commands,
Voice Clicking offers a unique solution. Simply by saying "left click," a left click will be performed. NaturalPoint makes it easy to try Voice Activated Clicking with ViaVoice Command & Control* software offered for the
low cost of $5.00. ViaVoice offers 16 voice commands, controlling nearly all mouse functions. Check out our
webstore for more information about purchasing this helpful clicking tool.
*cannot be used when other voice software is active
& SmartNav: SmartNav used in conjunction with Dragon NaturallySpeaking offers users head controlled mouse emulation, while dictating text and mouse commands through speech. By using the two products together, on-screen keyboard
and Dwell Click users have the option of choosing between dictation or head control, based on the application and environment.
Thirty-one-year-old Josh Winheld has demonstrated the endless possibilities of using SmartNav with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Josh recently used both SmartNav and Dragon to complete and publish his autobiography about living with Duchenne
muscular dystrophy. Visit
Josh's blog to learn more about his book, Worth the Ride: Living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. All proceeds of Josh's insightful and inspiring book are donated to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy.
SmartNav in the Classroom = Increased Curriculum Access
Each year the College of New Jersey's Special Education department publishes Tech New Jersey, a publication designed to enhance the lives of people with disabilities through
articles about innovative practices and resources. This year's User Profile section discusses the benefits of technology in the elementary school classroom. In
Volume 20 of Tech New Jersey, read about 10-year-old Dylan, who keeps pace with his peers by using SmartNav, a jellybean switch from AbleNet, and WordQ from QuillSoft. Now typing 20 words per minute on ClickNType, Dylan can
meet the fourth grade writing and editing demands.
