Camera Mouse For People with Disabilities

Camera Mouse For People with Disabilities

Camera Mouse is a program that allows you to control the mouse pointer on a Windows computer just by moving your head.

The program was developed to help people with disabilities use the computer. The main audience for this program is people who do not have reliable control of a hand but who can move their head.

People with Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, various neurological disorders use this program and its predecessors to run all types of computer software.

Camera Mouse works as a mouse replacement system for Windows computers so it should work with just about any application program. For example people use Camera Mouse with entertainment programs, education programs, communication programs, web browsers, and so on.

Camera Mouse works best with application programs that require only a mouse and a left click and that do not have tiny targets. It’s easier to use Camera Mouse with application programs that do not require extreme accuracy.

What equipment is required for Camera Mouse?

A Windows 7, Vista, or XP computer system and a standard USB webcam (or a webcam built into the computer or monitor). We do our development work with a Logitech Webcam  or a Microsoft LifeCam .

Camera Mouse works with other commercial USB webcams as well.
