    Hi this is Tabor
    I have joined this group recently.
    It is helping me not to feel aloneand share and lear from others.
    Could anyone let me know what one can use instead of computer mouse and instead of keying in with your fingers as my knuckles ache a lot. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions or if anyone is experiencing this problem

    Hi Tabor---welcome!

    I don't know the name of the program; but several people here use a voice-activated program that types what you say onto the screen. I'm sure they will be along to tell you what it is. It's nice to meet you!

    One well known program to use for speech recognition instead of typing is "Dragon" Jan/Dakota uses one of the speech recognition, I believe, not sure which one, maybe she will pop in soon.

    I see Dragon advertised on TV quite often, but type it in a search engine, and gives info. or speech recognition instead of typing. Good luck!
