Publication Date: 2007
Article presents the virtual Logo Keyboard, created to help people with motor impairments to program using the Logo programming language. The Logo Keyboard can be used with a Logo interpreter such as MicroWorlds Pro, UCBLogo, or MSWLogo. Interaction with the keyboard begins with a touch on an assistive device (mouse, switch, or keyboard). The message is sent to the Logo Keyboard and the chosen Logo command is sent to the command window where it is executed by the Logo interpreter. The results of usability tests conducted with 3 children are discussed.
