Over the weekend I received an email from a software company, IMG, I’d not heard of in quite some time. Their email was about an updated version of Joystick-To-Mouse software we used in the Dream-Mouse product a few years ago. This is what the email said about it:
Run Windows from Any Joystick, Gamepad, Steering Wheel, Foot Pedal, or other Gaming Device. This software has been a big hit with Gamers and Joystick users for over 15 years! If you love to play games with your Joystick or Gamepad, why not run your computer with it? Now available for Windows 8 & 7 (32 & 64 bit), XP & 2000.
Who might find it useful? In my opinion any assistive technology user who routinely uses a PC should take a look at it because it lets the user configure a joystick (or other gaming console device) to act like a mouse. (that’s why they call it Joystick-To-Mouse) It’s worth downloading the free, fully working, demo software to give it a go. I thought it was good when we used it. The reason we stopped was because, at the time, it hadn’t been updated to Windows 7 and W7 was becoming the new standard installed on PCs.
They also announced a Windows 8 version of ‘The Magnifier’.
The First Truly Affordable, Full Screen Software Magnifier, has just passed its 10th year providing low vision computer users with a powerful, easy to use, and inexpensive solution to their computer screen magnification needs. Now available for Windows 8 & 7 (32 & 64 bit), XP & 2000.
I’ve not used this particular software before but again, as there is a free demo download, what have you to loose? Take a look: this is the link to IMG: http://www.imgpresents.com/index.htm
