How Lightkey can benefit people with disabilities
Lightkey benefits a whole range of different users with various disabilities; from SpLD’s, anxiety and depression to physical disabilities and fine motor control issues. Users can increase the speed of the work they produce by reducing the barriers faced by spelling issues, being able to concentrate on getting their thoughts down in writing and by being more efficient. By reducing the number of keystrokes required to compose written studies people with disabilities can reduce the potential physical pain their condition may put on them.
Lightkey supports over 80 different languages allowing those students on language courses to utilise Lightkey in multiple languages. Students can also select additional subject specific categories from the 68 that are included within Lightkey, giving more accurate prediction for their chosen course.
