QUESTION

For a stroke victim – is there a mouse that doesn’t require a double click?

ANSWER

This is an interesting question and I am sure there are a lot of people who find it difficult to use the double click button for one reason or another.

There are several mice that have a built-in double click button which just needs ONE click to operate rather than two. Also there are a few programmable mice where one of the buttons can be made to simulate a double click.

In particular, look at the Double Click Mouse, one of the programmable Evoluent Mice , the Libra-90 Trackball or the Smartcat Pro Touchpad.

In addition there is a nifty software program call Nib Clickless Software which using dwell-click technology allows you to position your mouse at a certain location and if held there for long enough (a fraction of a second), does the double click for you.  There is a 30 day demo version of this software available at http://shop.adapt-it.co.uk/downloads/Nib.msi
