There are lots of individuals who are quadriplegic who access keyboards with mouth sticks.   It's a slow method of direct access, but it remains direct access.  You just hold the stick in your teeth at one end and move it about the keyboard using whatever musculature you have at your disposal from the neck up that permits you to do so.

By comparison to eye-gaze systems it's very low tech, but it tends to be significantly faster as a character-by-character (or selection by selection - depending on context) access method.

This topic has meandered way more than most, and lots of the side loops are interesting, too.

The psychology of adultery has been falsified by conventional morals, which assume, in monogamous countries, that attraction to one person cannot co-exist with a serious affection for another.  Everybody knows that this is untrue. . .
