Ergodex makes DX1 available to MARC program.
Mountain View, CA. The Microsoft Accessibility Resource Centers (MARC) program in partnership with two nonprofit organizations - the Alliance for Technology Access (ATA) and the Association of Assistive Technology Act Programs (ATAP) - currently have 45 centers in the United States. Each center provides technology training and assistance for people with a variety of disabilities that affect computer use, such as range of motion, low vision, hearing loss and cognitive impairments. Individual Centers maintain a computer resource lab to demonstrate assistive technology hardware and software products for individuals with disabilities. Today, most of the Centers have the Ergodex DX1 in their tool kit to improve accessibility and make computers easier to use. For more information on the MARC program and to locate a center near you, please visit the Accessibility Resource Center at: www.microsoft.com/enable/centers/.
More about the DX1
The DX1 is a powerful tool that lets you build a completely personalized computer interface. You can easily create functions for your existing programs and assign them to the DX1 Keys. You can arrange (and rearrange) the position of the DX1 Keys on the Pad to suit your particular preferences or work style. The DX1 Input System is compatible with most programs that use a keyboard for input, including: Web Browsers, Email Programs, Graphics Packages, Word Processors, Games, Video Editing Software and Office Applications.
The DX1 system lets people reassign keys on the fly as their needs change. Keys contain no wires or batteries. And because they have an adhesive surface, keys can be repositioned whenever desired. The ability to reassign and reposition keys at will means the DX1 offers the ultimate in flexibility. As people's needs change, they can change their input systems.
The DX1 pad connects to PC's via a USB cable and supports Windows 2000 and XP operating systems, with support for Vista to follow. The DX1 Input System consists of a Pad, 25 Keys, a removable Clear Tray and Key Labels. Accessories include 25 Keys, additional Trays and Key Labels. The DX1 Input System is now available at our eStore (store.ergodex.com) for $149.95. Optional accessories include 25 additional keys, additional trays and key labels.
Ergodex is building a team of AT specialists and resellers to introduce the benefits of the DX1 to the assistive technology community.
