New Site URL

BT, the provider of my internet services have decided in their infinite wisdom to cancel the free web hosting provided as part of the package I pay for.  As a result, after the end of October the old URL will no longer exist.  A new URL has been purchased and the web site migrated to this location.  The new address is;

IE Access Max interface
If you have difficulty with the accessibility settings in Internet Explorer, or work with someone who has this problem, try IE Access Max.
Altering web site font or colour settings for Internet Explorer can take between 6 and 8 clicks to set up. The options are located across 3 different pages on the Internet options dialog. Changing the settings can be quite difficult if you either don't know where they are, or you have forgotten the steps involved.
IE Access Max places all the accessibility options on a single page interface, allowing quick, easy and straight-forward access to the different settings. Simply open the application, make your selections, click the Apply button and it’s all done.
Download from the Accessibility page on the website

Global Accessibility Awareness Day + Aps in Arabic

In collaboration with MADA (Qatar Assistive Technology Center) a range of my applications have been translated to Arabic.  The apps can either be installed as individual programs or as a portable collection with a toolbar interface.  These applications were all publicised by MADA on GAAD as part of a range of specially prepared activities to mark GAAD.
If you would like to download the Arabic versions, please have a look at the MADA website; http://mada.org.qa/en/
Alongside this, a 15 minutes of fame moment, Ability magazine published a piece about the Arabic release a few days later;  http://www.abilitymagazine.org.uk/Articles/Article-187-3.aspx

First off. let me apologise for my lack of postings and new software over the last few months. This was in part due to experiencing a heart attack in December, and following this, I have been concentrating on developing work on a self employed basis.

But now on to the latest release.

Buttonista is an application which resides in the System Tray, and adds sounds to the left and right mouse button click action. Not what would immediately spring to mind as assistive software, this does work well in engaging children and anyone who experiences cognitive problems, by making mouse use fun. The differing sounds help to differentiate between the left and right where there is any left/right confusion.

There are 14 sound options, one of which is the ability to select your own wav files. The setup includes two demo sound files in the main application folder, however the options can be located anywhere on your computer. All settings are retained between sessions, and there is also an option to allow Buttonista to start with Windows.

As usual, this is available for download at the website http://www.fxc.btinternet.co.uk
