There is also a mouse that is a phone but looks a bit out of date and yet I
am sure I came across an new mouse with text keys

Subject: [Athen] using phone as keyboard input device

Does anyone have experience trying to use a cell phone keyboard as a
computer input device? We have a student who has enough range of motion and
dexterity to text on his cell phone quite efficiently, but really struggles
with a full-size keyboard. I can find small adaptive keyboards which are
quite costly, but was wondering if a cell phone keyboard would work.
