This is a rather silly thought and really is something and nothing but I’ve been awake all night, again, and it’s the sort of thing I start to notice :-S
I was looking at the picture of the man holding the tablet on Parkinson’s UK’s homepage (the one with glasses and the random pink stripe behind him). I can’t hold a tablet like that to save my life. I can’t always guarantee that I can stand still so using a tablet while standing is not usually an option, and even if I can, one or both hands inevitably shake making it necessary to place the thing on the table and use it with whichever hand is behaving the best. I’ve become moderately proficient in using my left hand even though I am right handed, which helps, but on a bad day, my neck goes into spasm too which necessitates a strange sort of lying down pose in order to use my laptop.
Even taking into account my ongoing concerns about data protection, my current dependency on technology has left me with an increased understanding of its potential however this is more than matched by my utter frustration at the lack of adaptations/ accessibility options to help me use it more effectively.
I envy the random man in the picture - as great as technology is, if only tablets and touchscreens were that easy to use! Jx
