OptiKey [94.6 MB] Win 8 - Win 10   Open Source

OptiKey is designed to assist Motor Neuron Disease (MND) patients with an on-screen keyboard allowing them to interact with Windows computers.

When used with an eye-tracking device, OptiKey's on-screen keyboard allows MND patients to complete tasks, such as email composition, using only their eyes. OptiKey can also be used with a mouse or webcam. Unlike expensive and unreliable Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) products that are difficult to use, Optikey is free, reliable, and easy to use.

OptiKey is good to go right out of the box once you have your eye-tracking device installed and allows selections to be made using dwell selection (pausing on your selection until the red time wheel opens), as well as physical buttons and assistive devices (such as Glassouse, or assistive switches). If you do not have an eye tracking device, you can use OptiKey with a mouse or your webcam. Another useful aspect is any typed text can be directed to be spoken by the program.

Personal Backup [14.6 MB] Win XP - Win 10   Freeware

Personal Backup saves personal data to any destination folder located on a local fixed or removable drive, Windows network server, or an FTP server.

You can configure and store as many backup tasks as you wish. The selection of the files to be backed up is made on a by-folder basis. All subfolders are included automatically, but the user can exclude or include any subdirectories from or in the backup by selection or by a filter. Additional criteria are the selection by file type, file age, and file name filter.

At the destination folder, the original drives (C:, D:, etc.) appear as subdirectories named LwC, LwD, etc. The original directory structure remains unchanged beneath these folders. All files may be compressed in gzip, either in toto or separated by subfolders as zip files. Optionally all data can be AES algorithm-encrypted.
