Article describes the MorseMouse, which is a specialized mouse that was developed at the First Assistive Technology and Resource Center in Taipei, Taiwan. The device has enabled a client who is quadriplegic and respiratory-dependent to operate a computer. The MorseMouse uses combinations of short, long, and extra long switch presses to determine what action the computer curser takes. For example, one short press equals “move cursor;” two long and one short equals “left key double click;” and one long and one extra long press equals “de-activate drag.” The MorseMouse uses the standard Windows mouse driver, and only has to be plugged in to replace the existing mouse.
