The TouchWindow is a touch screen designed to provide computer access for individuals who are unable to use a mouse or who have cognitive or learning disabilities. When this touch screen is connected to a computer, touching an on-screen object or word with a finger or stylus will generate input to the computer. This enables users to concentrate on the learning task because there are no intermediate steps or devices to interfere with their attention. Selection of commands, composition of graphics, and other functions can be performed. It can also be used as a switch by setting it flat on a table or wheelchair tray. It is compatible with most Macintosh and Windows software that works with a mouse. The device comes with an instruction manual, plastic stylus, mounting rails and buttons, and an installation guide.
