ABSTRACT The purpose of this study is to narrow down the digital gap between people with and those without physical impairments in
Taiwan. To better understand the need of the digital learning for people with physical impairments, the authors have created
the digital characteristic assessment scale, digital need assessment scale, and developed the mouse training system and on-screen
keyboard assessment system. In order to comprehend the performance and practicability of the scales and systems, this integrated
project have also applied these tools to evaluate and train the clients with muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.

To fulfill the need of training the clients and providing appropriate assistant facilities, the alternative input device and
the adapted web platform have been developed. The result validates the feasibility of both software and hardware developed
by our implementation.
