  Keyboard stickers are a good way to adapt a standard keyboard to the format required by the user; lowercase, hi-visibility, uppercase contrast etc. The stickers can easily be removed when the user no longer requires them. This is the joystick version of the Roller II rollerball; has the same colour coded button and three external switch sockets. The joystick can be adapted to suit the individual users needs; T-bar control, soft ball control, as well as the standard. This 'alternative' mouse is great for both SEN and Foundation Stage users; it has no right click button or scroll function so eliminates the difficulties a user might have distinguishing between a left and right click, or using the scroll button.
