Just what he said. A missionary whom I knew used the stick to control his computer and allow the speech to speak for him at conferences. He had ALS.
Technology is an amazing gift from God.

A mouth stick? Are you serious? I never knew you could use a computer with your mouth. I mean, I've known about voice recognition, if that's what you're thinking of.
Sticky keys allow my friend who is a quadrapolegic to use her computer with a mouth stick. She can not hold down multiple keys while pressing another key.
I'm not sure why they have "Sticky Keys" either.
In the UK, the RIGHT ALT key, is a combinedALT+CTRL key. Being used to having an ALT on either side of the space bar, I always have a problem using a UK keyboard, because I have to keep remembering to move my right thumb to the left ALT key, in order to perform commands related to the left hand, for example, ALT+F and ALT+W, etc.
I would like to meet the idiots, who came up with that idea.
The question I have to ask, if two keys are to be combined on one key, then, what is the point of having a feature in Windows called "Sticky Keys".
