DISCONTINUED. (Verified 10/2000) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. The Adaptive Firmware Card (AFC), model G32e, is a peripheral card designed to enable various alternative input devices to be plugged into the Apple IIe or Apple IIGS computers so that standard software can be run by people with various disabilities. With the AFC, input speed, speech feedback, key size, and other options can be matched to the user's skills. Other features include slowdown to make the software run at a slower speed so keystrokes are more accurate and choices are presented at a more manageable speed; letter size to give the user better visibility with scanning in full-screen graphics programs; and adjustable input rates and switch hold down time to tailor keyboards to heavy-handed or light typists. INPUT METHODS: Alternate input methods supported by the card are alternate keyboards, scanning, assisted keyboards, Morse code, ASCII input, and multiple switch boxes. TALKING WORD BOARD: The AFC includes the Talking Word Board software, a communication program that repeats paragraphs, sentences, words, or letters as the user types them. It has fully adjustable features and works with all input methods. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple IIe (128K enhanced) or Apple IIGS computers. Key Large, Unicorn, and Mini alternative keyboards (see separate entries) are compatible.
