Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Feb 7, 2020

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Looking for a way to control your computer from your smartphone?  Check out the Remote Mouse app!  Remote Mouse is an app that transforms your mobile device into a user-friendly remote control for your computer!

After downloading the app on your iOS or Android device, your phone will become a computer touchpad, keyboard, and mouse.  It features smart multi-touch gestures so all you have to do is click and slide!

Other features include:

  • You can easily shut down, restart, log off, or put computer to sleep in one click
  • Quickly launch and switch between applications
  • Move the mouse cursor simply by waving your phone in the air
  • You can type by voice if the soft keyboard supports voice recognition
  • And much, much more!
