I have essential tremors in my hands. I just downloaded Swype and see immediately how it will make a huge difference in my life by reducing the stress on my hands.

I am an assistive technology specialist and I am considering recommending SWYPE for a client with essential tremors. What has been your experience using this as an
alternative text input method?

all input appreciated.

I would have to give up my Android phone if it were not for Swype. I can not use the standard keyboard when my tremors are bad. Tapping out a message is difficult and stressful. I would highly recommend using Swype. Try it out for yourself. There was a slight learning curve but in 2 days I had it down pat.

I have mild ET where tapping is somewhat frustrating at times.

By being to apply consistent pressure using my thumb, it helps with the accuracy. Also, by setting the speed vs accuracy bar all the way to the right for maximum error tolerance allows me to get the right word despite being somewhat sloppy
