Desktop Manipulation

WiViK offers a unique and innovative solution that addresses the issue of desktop manipulation for scanning users. In this method, buttons, menus, scroll bars, and other objects are sequentially highlighted and then selected. We call this a “task transparent” solution.

WiViK includes several keyboard layouts that are appropriate for various scanning strategies. They include commands to scroll, resize and move windows, scan menus, position the text cursor, and emulate mouse movements. The keyboard crnfreq.kbm is the most commonly used scanning keyboard. It has been designed for row/column scanning with letters arranged so that frequently used letters are close to the upper left-hand corner.
