I have a lot of trouble with inaccessible hardware, inaccessible software, etc. when using the computer.
I have sensory issues, chronic migraines, coordination issues, rsi, and other issues.
Can anyone suggest useful resources, fora, etc.?
I have tried help fora, without success. I have tried disability-development fora, but they are usually aimed at programmers, at web designers, etc. rather than at users just trying to make do.
I can’t type without seeing where I’m typing, and I have trouble with multi-fingered and two-handed tasks. Also, I can’t use ergonomic advice based on the idea that everyone can and should be two-handed touch typists. I can’t use certain grips. I can’t use scrollwheels or trackballs. I have trouble with touch devices, and have to be able to disable tapping and gestures to avoid accidentally triggering them.
I have trouble with speech-to-text, because of accent differences, and because I use a lot of text tables.
I have trouble with bright lights, flashing lights, many animated images, all zooming images, and sheering images, among others.
I currently use OS X on a Mac. I previously used Ubuntu Classic on a Windows machine, but I had a lot of driver trouble, and repository issues, and the keyboard broke. Unfortunately, OS X does not have options to remove animation from the system prefs - I have to stick something in front of the screen to change certain system prefs, or to widen scrollbars, or to keep cursors from flashing.
