KeyStrokes

We have discontinued the sales of KeyStrokes after macOS High Sierra (10.13) was released. 

In 2002, KeyStrokes was the first AT product for Mac OS X. It has provided access to Mac OS X for people with motor-challenges who could not use a physical keyboard. Over the years it has developed into the gold standard for on-screen keyboards. We are happy to report that with macOS High Sierra (10.13), Apple includes an on-screen keyboard that will provide essential on-screen keyboard functionality right inside macOS.

Now macOS High Sierra (10.13) is publicly released you can find these features in the Accessibility panel of the System Preferences. Because macOS 10.14, the next version after High Sierra, is expected to only work with 64 bit native applications, KeyStrokes will not be able to run on 10.14.

Please feel free to contact us at support@assistiveware.com if you have any questions.

SwitchXS

SwitchXS was the first product to provide access to Mac OS X for switch users. It has served many people well for many years, but Apple has continued to improve the built-in Mac accessibility features. Sales of SwitchXS have been discontinued because macOS now offers most of the scanning features SwitchXS was originally designed for. You can find all these features in the Switch Control section of the Accessibility panel of the System Preferences. Switch Control now in many ways surpasses SwitchXS and has become a better option for switch users wanting to access macOS. Additionally, it is free and pre-installed as part of macOS.

Proloquo

Proloquo was the first Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) solution for Mac OS X. Over the last couple of years, we have seen interest in Proloquo dwindling with more and more user switching to iPhone or iPad for their AAC needs. AAC users now prefer to use apps such as Proloquo2Go and Proloquo4Text on iOS.

Maintaining compatibility with future macOS versions has become difficult for a product that is used only by a handful of users. We have therefore discontinued sales of Proloquo for Mac. For AAC users looking for a way to use their Mac as a communication device, we recommend trying out Wrise. While not an AAC app it does support much Text to Speech features, including Speak as You Type. We know several former Proloquo users who have switched to Wrise for their Mac-based communication needs.

VisioVoice

VisioVoice was the first third-party product to provide access to Mac OS X for people with vision impairments. It has served many people well for many years, but Apple has continued to improve the built-in Mac accessibility features. Sales of VisioVoice have been discontinued because macOS now offers most of the zoom features VisioVoice was originally designed for. You can find all these accessibility options in the Accessibility panel of the System Preferences. It comes free with macOS.

If you are looking for an alternative for VisioVoice's text reader functionality take a look at Wrise, which not only provides a great accessible text reader but also offers a range of accessible word processing features.
