Please know that without really having much information, it is a toughy to
make AT suggestions but just brainstorming here. Has she explored a
headmouse with mouse emulating software, dynamic keyboard with word
prediction. These options might allow her to write without a scribe. I
understand that this would not serve her on the go but, when at a computer,
she could compose, email, and access a computer -

Also, the new eye gaze systems that are available might be something to
consider. I have not had the pleasure of "playing" with one but they look
like they might be something to look at.
