OnScreen with CrossScanner joins the Assistive Technology version of IMG's My-T-Soft Keyboards along with CrossScanner, RJ Cooper's Single-switch Windows control software. This is a special version for individuals that cannot use a mouse, trackball, or any other type of pointing device, and use a switch-based approach to operating their computer.
OnScreen with CrossScanner is a highly sophisticated approach for operating a Microsoft Windows based system. By using CrossScanner and a single-switch, any point on the screen can be selected, and any mouse type operation such as clicks, double-clicks, drag, or right-clicks can be accomplished with a few switch hits. Then, using OnScreen and its built in features such as WordComplete, text input can be sent to any program for creating documents, e-mails, or performing simple text entry tasks, all driven by CrossScanner and the single-switch interface. With OnScreen and CrossScanner, a switch user can do anything an average user using a physical keyboard and mouse can do, enabling users who would otherwise be restricted to closed or limited environments. This opens up the entire computing universe to a single switch user.
OnScreen provides On-Screen keyboard emulation that works with ANY Windows program. The Assistive Technology Version provides a wealth of features specifically designed for use by individuals who can not easily use common input devices.
CrossScanner provides single-switch scanning to individuals who cannot operate a mouse, trackball, or other pointing device, but are capable of triggering a single switch. Interfaces supported are through the mouse, joystick, or keyboard inputs. As a software publisher, IMG does not provide switches or any hardware - see our Assistive Technology Web Links for any hardware needs.
CrossScanner presents a LineScan (vertical scan) when initially triggered to scan down the screen, so the user can select the Y coordinate for their click, double-click, or drag operation. The FingerScan (horizontal scan) begins with the IconWindow of Actions available (selectable by a switch hit), and then continues until the next switch hit, where the selected action occurs at the selected X/Y coordinate (e.g. double-click on an icon). If there is no switch hit, the FingerScan (Optional) begins a reverse scan to allow a right-click action. There are numerous other options available based on user requirements.
OnScreen is a Windows software program that provides a powerful interface through a ANY pointing device by providing on-screen keyboards, Word Prediction / Word Completion, user programmable macros, and complete control over all computer functions.

End-user and Developer Support
With the WordComplete / Action panel open, as you begin to type, a frequency sorted list of words is presented to the user. If more letters are typed, the choices reflect the new list of candidates. A single click of the word will complete the word in the document or e-mail being typed into. Undo becomes available, and the word's frequency count is incremented. If a new word is typed, the word is added into the user's Word Lists. Auto-spacing, auto-capitalization, suffixes, and other WordComplete features can greatly increase the typing speed and accuracy of the user!
With over 14 years of development & user feedback, CrossScanner contains a wealth of features and options to address actual user's needs!

Features like acceleration through the IconWindow, toggle FingerScan direction, Speed controls, Scan Area settings, Active Window Scan, and numerous other options provide a simple and/or sophisticated approach to controlling all aspects of Windows via just a single switch.
