Marsha sent an email! [Apr. 17th, 2006|08:32 am]

Quite a long one, too. I'm so excited!

She's using the Keystrokes on-screen keyboard, which we got when she was originally having a hard time with the keyboard. (Then we figured out that it could be velcro'd to a tilt-top wheeled over-the-bed table, so she could see it and it wouldn't slip away from her hand; then her fingers stopped working). She hadn't used Keystrokes much, though, since her hand went out: sometimes when I came in I'd see a line or two of text, but this is five paragraphs.

Nice! Is the improved usage because she's regaining some movement in her hand, or is it the new configuration that's making Keystrokes easier to use?

I think it's that she's found a better way to use the trackball (a special one with a ball somewhat bigger than a pool ball). She moves it with the back of her hand now, rather than trying to curl her fingers around it.

She's persistent!
