This chapter explores current tools and techniques used to access Electronic Assistive Technologies and how they can be used by clients with a range of disabilities. The chapter suggests a general assistive technology model in which access technologies can be considered, and defines the component parts of the model. We then discuss and define the range of access technologies that are currently available, including: keyboards; touchscreens; pointing devices; eye gaze; switch access; speech recognition; and brain-computer interfaces.
