LipStick (also known as WordWriter or McIntyre) is an alternate input system for an Apple Macintosh, employing a joystick or track ball in place of the standard mouse and keyboard. Moving the joystick or rolling the track ball is equivalent to sliding the mouse. Pushing the joystick "fire" button or pressing the track ball button is equivalent to clicking the mouse button. WordWriter software presents an image of the keyboard on the computer screen. Included with the keyboard is a predictive vocabulary list of over 4,000 words; users can add and delete words or phrases from this list. The user can perform the equivalent of typing on the keyboard by moving the mouse cursor to a letter or word on the keyboard image and pushing the button. The joystick is available mounted on a gooseneck for mouth operation, but can also be mounted differently and operated by another part of the body. The input system operates transparently, offering the user access to most commercially available software for the Macintosh computer. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple Macintosh computers.
