The MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities requests a voting interface that’s convenient to use for individuals with motor skill disabilities. This system needs to accommodate the difficulties of a variety of different motor skill disabilities. It has been determined that the best solution would be an accessible joystick that can be interface with voting software on a secure PC. Our goal is to create a joystick that allows individuals with motor skill disabilities an efficient, convenient method for voting.
This research was funded through a grant from the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF), Accessible Voting Technology Initiative (AVTI) to Michigan State University (ITIF Subgrant No. 2013004; Prime Grant No. EAC110149B – U.S. Election Assistance Commission).
