Laurie, there are voice rec programs for handicapped kids, wondering if some of them might work for you. You've tried Dragon Dictate, right? Do you have an iPad? It has a lot of accessibility features. I type one-fingered on the iPad, which proves faster for me than using all my fingers on my regular computers. A very soft touch can be used. You can also use a stylus, maybe even with a wrist support. Have you talked to an occupational therapist? An OT affiliated with the schools might be a help for a consultation, as they may be more savvy about stuff available than ones at the clinic.

Best to you and your sister!

Thanks GG and thank you Dawg!

My best friend is a special needs coordinator for the school district. She also has a son with tourretes and I know he has some special programs on his tablet as he can't take notes when he is ticcing badly. I will ask her if she knows of anything or who to talk to.

Yes, I have tried several Dragon products. I really appreciate all your help.

Snip is fine, she's just unable to connect at this time. She'll be back soon.

Thanks for the info PF. Nice to know I can let up on my worrying...about Snip. Now about the REST of you with medical/home/family/personal issues. Let's just say my prayer list is long.
