Microsoft Adaptive Accessories are all-inclusive

Microsoft Adaptive Accessories are all-inclusive ...

Keyboards and mice aren''t exactly abilities-bodied computers. They aren''t just able-bodied computers, but they can be a major obstacle for individuals with disabilities. Microsoft has increased its inclusivity efforts with a new Adaptive Accessories line, which will be on sale later this month.

Customers will be able to place an order from the 25th of October, thanks to the Adaptive Accessories range, which was also developed with input from disabled users. These technologies allow for extensive customization to replace a standard mouse or keyboard input.

The Adaptive Mouse, Hub, and Buttons are the lead performers. The mouse can be used solo or customized with an attachable tail and thumb supports, which can sit on the other side to suit left- and right-handers. D-Pads, joysticks, and dual buttons are also available for a personalized setup.

The Hub can connect to up to four different adaptive buttons, which can be configured to perform shortcuts or keystrokes, and works with existing third-party buttons or switches thanks to five 3.5mm connections.

Microsoft has now collaborated with Shapeways, a 3D printing company, to produce several different button toppers and 3D mouse tails, which were shaped with input from the disabled population. Shapeways can also be used as a replacement for Microsoft Business Pen and Microsoft Classroom Pen 2.

Right now, prices are unknown, but given that the Xbox Adaptive controller wasn''t much more than a standard Xbox One X pad, were betting the range will not be too expensive once it lands.
