Modern graphical user interfaces (GUIs) have made computers accessible to millions of people, but they have had the unfortunate side effect of preventing some people from using computers at all. A slight hand tremor can be enough to stop someone positioning a mouse with accuracy and then making a click, while a person with one useable hand can find reaching across a keyboard a tiring and offputting chore - and that's before they have to hold down the shift or control keys. For people with very limited movement, the modern GUI is an impossible barrier. Skipper (screenshot here) is a new open source accessibility package which makes the best use of whatever people with severe movement impairment can move. It removes the barrier to GUI use for the disabled.
