Simple Switch Scanning and Voice Output in MS Word 2004 for OSX
Download the Guide: Simple Switch Scanning in MS Word
Wow, I knew Word was cool, but this one got me.
In the Mac OS X version of Word 2004, open up the Speech toolbar by going to View: Toolbars: Speech.
Now open up a chart, like the one I have attached (This one is a reading overlay). Click on the first grid. Now position the mouse over the Speak Selection button on the Speech toolbar. Now you can have one switch set to tab and the other switch set to click.
￼Kind of cool right? I wonder how this can be used? It does not have an auditory preview, but if you could rig the switches so that one switch split and went to both tab and speak, that could hypothetically give you the preview. Then when you hit the second other switch it would speak it again. You may have to use two switch interfaces, though. Hmm…what else?
