Launcher6 is a simplified, switch accessible user interface that can launch programs, act as an electronic speech device, or act as a multimedia game spinner for Windows computers. The launcher6 screen completely covers the screen offering 6 choices, but reducing the probability that the user will encounter the perhaps troublesome Windows interface. Multiple access methods and supports like auditory scanning are simultaneously supported. The built in editor saves any changes automatically as they are made.
MyMediaPlayer is a simple switch accessible media player with a delay-to-pause feature to encourage repeated interations. MMP allows for a video file and an audio file (if desired) to be played simultaneously. File locations are stored on playlists for convenience, and the playlists and most recent setup are saved automatically. When MMP is restarted the most recent setup is loaded automatically.
