Study of Man-Machine Communications Systems for Disabled Persons (The Handicapped). Volume IV. Final Report.
The volume contains experimental instructional materials designed for teacher and handicapped student use with two man-machine communications systems, Cybertype and Cyber-Go-Round, developed as educational aids for the severely handicapped. Cybertype is a writing machine with various possible configurations of portable keyboards with a reduced number of keys. This permits written communication by persons who lack the motor ability or coordination to write legibly or to operate a standard typewriter keyboard. Lesson plans and exercises for learning the Cybertype keyboard constitute the major portion of the document. Also included are pilot experimental printed and pictorial slide message units for the Cyber-Go-Round system, a medium of communication utilizing slide-messages.
