Want to see a true test of “usability” and accessibility on the Acer C200? Enter David Wallace, aka “lifekludger”. Dave is a C4 Quadraplegic since an auto accident in 1981, and he knows how to make a Tablet PC do it’s thing!
Dave managed to borrow a C200, and spent some great time working on it and judging it’s true accessibility. Here is a clip from his C200 review:
“In short, for me, operating a computer as I do with a disability layout and positioning is everything, well the absolute first priority overriding all other considerations anyway. If I can’t reach it with my mouthstick, leave it in the box! So the Acer really grabbed my attention.
When I got hold of one I found the layout of keyboard, with the keys right at the front edge, the compact design and the ‘reachable-ness’ of everything brilliant. The Trackpoint ‘pointer’ device, although not my ultimate device for pointing, worked for me and the little scroll-wheel, which was an added feature I hadn’t accounted for, I found handy and easy to use, despite the angle. The fact it has great specs, speed, all the connectivity you could want and Tablet functions to boot were pleasing benefits”.
