A pivotal role in the household

Marie-France has lost her voice and can only move a jaw muscle because of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Motor Neurone Disease (MND) or Lou Gherigs Disease. In this 4 minute video she shows how, with a single switch and AssistiveWare's Proloquo, KeyStrokes and SwitchXS software, she accesses her Apple PowerBook computer and communicates with others. She explains how she continues to perform a pivotal role in the household by doing the shopping, managing the bank accounts and even designing her own web site. Sadly, Marie-France passed away on 30 January 2012.
