3) Tips from Users

1) 10 Key for the One Hand Typist and Voice Recognition

 

I am none to happy with voice recognition software ... yet. It is difficult to program, noisy, and a great strain on the voice.

 

However, we have come up with one application for the one hand typist and voice recognition software: 10 Key tasks!

 

If anyone who was heavily into 10 key tasks at work finds themselves needing to back off, or they have lost the use of hand, then voice recognition software is great tool. With only 18 - 24 keys to program, the task of teaching the software your voice is much less daunting.

2) One Hand Piano Playing

 

Several parents have asked me about one hand piano playing. I know very little about it but this. The music written for it tends to be rather advanced. There does not seem to be a program, yet, to help the one handed beginner. But I will keep looking! Here is one user suggestion ...

<< Lilly--I am a left handed one arm piano player. I simply play by ear. I have a Clavanova CV-96. I play one finger chords. (the orchestration is set for you--all you have to do is swing over and touch a key and it will play that chord. Then swing to the right side and play the melody. So your left hand is moving from left to the right all the time.

My wife reads music and loves to play it as well. Just give it some thought.

If you wish, I could email you a song or two from my Clavanova disk. I am not the best---but I sure do have fun. Hope this will be of help. Jack Northrup >>

 

Here is a sample of one hand piano music

3. Tips From Users

<< By the way, I found a great "reminder" device to help people remember to take breaks (for their hands, back, etc.). It's a very small vibrating disk that vibrates every so often to remind the user. You can set this vibrating timer for 15, 30, 45, 60, and 120 minutes. The disk is about the size of a 50 cent piece and 1/4" thick; it's very convenient to slip in a pocket and it comes with a garment clip for wearing with dresses, etc.

 

Anyway, AliMed sells it for about $30; the thing is actually made by Innovative Tracking Solutions at 800-968-7762. Their website is www.privatepractice.com.

 

It's a great reminder, although the non-replaceable batteries die after 6 - 12 months. I plan on using them with my consumers who tend to forget to take breaks... >>
