have announced the release schedule for the next version of KeyStrokes, a virtual keyboard for Mac OS X, and a new application called SwitchXS.
The US$195 KeyStrokes is targeted to users with disabilities and provides an integrated, systemwide utility that allows mouse button clicks to be entered by holding the cursor motionless for a programmable period of time. The upcoming KeyStrokes 3.0 is due next month and will include a new “word prediction” engine. If you buy KeyStrokes before version 3.0 is released, Niemeijer Consult will give you a free update.
SwitchXS 1.0 will allow single and multiple switch access to Mac OS X, offering full mouse and keyboard emulation by means of a so-called scanning mechanism. It’s due this summer.
