Advice & Tips: I am surprised more people don't use Dasher. It is FREE. People seem to get it and love it or they don't get it and give up. For those that get it, it is fast and very easy on the eyes because there is no clicking required. I can't image life without it.

Advice & Tips: Skeleton Key has been great for me. I used it from approximately 2005-Sep 2010, for a one-time cost of $99. It was created by a PALS, Dov Wisebrod, in Holland. The reason I stopped using it is because the program no longer has any tech support, as Mr. Wisebrod is no longer available. If anyone has any more information on how to get tech support, please contact me. Thanks! Steve
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: First, I believe that Dasher and Skeleton Key should be listed as "Software, Assistive", so as not to mislead. Dasher is a free software, available at http://www.dasher.org.uk/, and is an excellent keyboard alternative when typing becomes too difficult.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Muscle aches
