Shih, Ching-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities and minimal motor behavior would be able to improve their Drag-and-Drop (DnD) performance using their finger/thumb poke ability with a mouse scroll wheel through a Dynamic Drag-and-Drop Assistive Program (DDnDAP). A multiple probe design across participants was used in this study…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien; Pi, Pi-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
The latest research adopting software technology to improve pointing performance is through an Automatic Target Acquisition Program (ATAP), where the user can click on the mouse button when a dashed line is aimed at the desired target, instead of moving the cursor to the target. However, ATAP has one limitation--it cannot benefit from Mouseover…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study combines multi-mice technology (people with disabilities can use standard mice, instead of specialized alternative computer input devices, to achieve complete mouse operation) with an assistive pointing function (i.e. cursor-capturing, which enables the user to move the cursor to the target center automatically), to assess whether two…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien; Peng, Chin-Ling – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities would be able to improve their pointing performance through an Automatic Target Acquisition Program (ATAP) and a newly developed mouse driver (i.e. a new mouse driver replaces standard mouse driver, and is able to monitor mouse movement and intercept click action). Initially, both…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
The latest researches have adopted software technology turning the gyration air mouse into a high performance limb movement detector, and have assessed whether two persons with multiple disabilities would be able to control an environmental stimulation using limb movement. This study extends gyration air mouse functionality by actively reducing…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien; Chiu, Hsin-Chin – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2010
The latest research adopting software technology to improve pointing performance is through an Extended Automatic Pointing Assistive Program (EAPAP). However, EAPAP has some limitations. This study evaluated whether two children with developmental disabilities would be able to improve their pointing performance through an Extended Dual Cursor…

Shimizu, Hirofumi; Yoon, Soyoung; McDonough, Christopher S. – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2010
We taught seven preschoolers with developmental disabilities to point-and-click with a computer mouse. The computer-based training program consisted of three parts, based on a task analysis of the behavioral prerequisites to point-and-click. Training 1 was designed to shape moving the mouse. Training 2 was designed to build eye-hand coordination…

Shih, Ching-Hsiang; Shih, Ching-Tien – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2010
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities who could not easily use a computer through a standard input device (i.e., mouse or trackball) would be able to improve their pointing performance using thumb poke with a standard trackball through a Dynamic Trackball-Pointing Assistive Program (DTPAP) and a newly developed…

Lin, Yun-Lung; Chen, Ming-Chung; Chang, Yun-Ting; Yeh, Chih-Ching; Meng, Ling-Fu – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2009
The purpose of this study was to compare the performance of mouse pointing and selecting in the tasks with different index of difficulty between 20 pupils with intellectual disabilities and 21 pupils without disabilities. A mouse proficiency assessment software was utilized to collect data. Pupils with intellectual disabilities executed tasks more…
