Single Switch Access to Firefox

April 20th, 2007

The newly developed Hawking Toolbar is a free, open source plugin for the Firefox web browser that makes possible single-switch access to the internet through an autoscan. It also provides group scanning, which makes the process much more efficient, and switch access to page scrolling and the most common browser features, making it useful for two-switch users as well.

Many thanks to Linda Wilson who notified me that this was missing from my original Switch Access to the Internet article.

    Steve Lee from Oatsoft alerted me to this post.

    Your review of the toolbar has very useful constructive criticism, including a couple points I hadn’t considered. Thanks!

    I plan to fix these weaknesses over the summer. If there’s anything that anyone else thinks would be a use improvement, please let me know here or on the oatsoft site:

    The oatsoft site will always have the most up-to-date info (all development, bug reports, etc. is hosted there, and I recommend it to others), however more information is also available at:
