Keyboarding accuracy for a student with physical disabilities: A synergistic approach

The purpose of this study was to examine a synergistic application of three different technologies to improve the keyboarding accuracy of an individual with significant motor disorders. Three keyboarding technologies were layered to measure the power of each assistive technology independently and collectively. The results show a significant increase in typing accuracy using the technologies in an integrated manner. Implications and suggestions for future research are put forth.
