Clara OCR
Clara OCR is an OCR for systems that support the C library and the X windows system (e.g. most flavours of Unix). It is intended for large scale digitalization projects, and features a powerful GUI and a web interface for cooperative digitalization of books. Clara OCR development started in 1999 and we're approaching production quality.
Dasher is a zooming predictive text entry application that uses the accessibility framework to provide application control functionality. It is ideal for situations where a keyboard is not usable. It now supports 80 different languages. Releases Code:
'dictator' lets users read on-screen text faster and easier by using the Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) method. Features include dynamic text flow, Unicode support, a bookmark manager, customizable Web references, customizable text import filters, fullscreen mode, and more.
Enable Viacam (eViacam) is a mouse replacement software that moves the pointer as you move your head. It works on standard PC equipped with a webcam. No additional hardware is required.
Emacspeak is a suite of task-oriented tools that, through Emacs, provides speech-enabled access to the Web. With support for the freely downloadable IBM ViaVoice Outloud speech synthesis engine, Emacspeak makes GNU/Linux systems the first zero-cost (commercially available screenreaders typically double the cost of a personal computer) Internet access solution for blind and visually impaired users. Emacspeak speaks the underlying information of a visual display, not its contents. For example, if you use a calendar application with a screenreader you hear a sequence of meaningless numbers, but Emacspeak speaks the relevant date in an easily understood manner. The system uses audio formatting to increase the band-width of aural communication; changes in voice characteristic and inflection combine with non-speech auditory icons to create the equivalent of spatial layout, fonts, and graphical icons. This provides contextual feedback and shifts some of the burden of listening from the cognitive to the perceptual domain. The program comes with a default set of auditory icons; they can be replaced with any of the themes available (typically higher quality recordings).
EncNotex is a free multiplatform software, which runs natively on GNU/Linux, Windows and macOS, that is useful to write and to manage a file of strongly encrypted textual notes and tasks. It’s aim is to grant the user an highly secure tool to manage very confidential data. For this reason EncNotex uses the AES 256 bit encryption, cipher mode CBC and SHA 512; the user cannot save unencrypted data on the disk, but only copy it in the clipboard; the required password to encrypt a file is necessarily 10 characters long or more, chosen at least from three of these four groups: small and upper case letters, numbers and other characters (asterisk, brackets, etc.); optionally, the password used to save a file could be forgotten by the software and typed again by the user each time a file is to be saved, so that the same password does not remain in the computer’s memory while the software is being used. A file of EncNotex is a textual encrypted file containing many notes (no database is used). To grant a perfect compatibility of data among the different platforms and to be very fast even with big amount of data, EncNotex has a very simple structure of notes. They cannot have pictures inside nor attachments, but their text can be formatted in bold, italic and underline. Every note has a title, a list of tags (keywords) separated by comma and space, a date and a free-length text, and can be printed. The title and the date of every note is shown in a read only grid on the left of the interface of the software, and a note can be shown selecting its title in this grid. Furthermore, in the same grid the title of a note can be indented or deindented, to make it a subnote of the previous one, or moved up and down, along with its possible subnotes. At the left of the text of the notes there is an outlook of its titles, which can be used to reach easily one of them, and of the possible tasks along with their deadline. The tasks of all the notes of a file can be summarized in a list, sorted, filtered and copied in the clipboard to be pasted in a spreadsheet, or saved in csv or ics format. It's possible to search for a note within the titles, the tags, the dates and the texts. A note or all the notes of a file can be copied in the clipboard in HTML format and then pasted in a word processor maintaining the possible HTML tags. Finally, two independent backup files are automatically created when a file is loaded and when it's saved.

'GAIL' is a GTK+ module that provides accessibility support for GTK+ and libgnomecanvas by implementing AtkObjects for widgets in the two libraries. For example, if the module is loaded in a program which calls gtk_widget_get_accessible() for a GtkEntry, an instance of GailEntry is returned. This module is normally used with the atk-bridge GTK+ module from at-spi to allow an assistive technology, e.g a screenreader, to query or drive the program.
GMouseTool is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). The program tracks your mouse movements and when you stop the mouse over any object a click is sent. It is possible to configure the GMouseTool to send left, right and double-clicks to any application. You can use GMouseTool to drag-and-drop objects too.
GNOME Shell Extension TaskBar
TaskBar is a GNOME Shell extension. It displays icons of running applications on the top panel or alternatively on a new bottom panel. Activate, minimize or close tasks with a simple click. TaskBar is a dock-like windows list on the top/bottom bar. Development stopped Last stable version (Apr 5, 2018 / available here): 57.0 Last updates (Oct 17, 2018):
The GNOME On-screen Keyboard (GOK) includes an alphanumeric keyboard and a keyboard for launching applications. Users specify keyboards and access methods in XML, which lets them modify existings methods and create new ones. Users can set key width, height, and spacing as well as visual and auditory feedback on highlighting and selection. GOK also dynamically creates keyboards to adapt to a specific situation by redisplaying user interface components of running applications directly within GOK as keyboards. The user then has efficient access to elements of the user interface and does not need to navigate the interface indirectly though keyboard accelerators. GOK also supports the redisplay of application menus and toolbars, and includes a window activator keyboard that lists the current windows and lets users switch between them.
'gnome-mag' defines a magnification service API and a sample implementation for GNOME 2. It includes a simple onscreen magnifier. It can be used in conjunction with GNOME Accessibility, for instance by clients of the at-spi interfaces.
'gnome-speech' intends to provide to provide a simple general API for producing text-to-speech output as well as speech input. It consists of IDL interface definitions, libgnomespeech (a library for speech driver development) a Java package to help develop gnome-speech drivers in Java, and sample driver implementations.
Gnopernicus is designed to allow blind and visually impaired user to use the computer. gnopernicus presents the information using three devices: speech, magnifier and braille. Downloads:
Gnustep Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Provides an object oriented application development framework and tool set for use on a wide variety of platforms. It provides a generalized visual interface design and a cohesive user interface. It also uses a common imaging model called Display PostScript (based on PostScript) to do all its drawing, so the program is truly WYSIWYG. GNUstep is written in the Objective-C language, a simple yet powerful object-oriented language based on C that gives you the full power of an object-oriented language with exactly one syntax addition to C and a dozen or so additional keywords.
go is a small shell command for changing directories quickly. Typically you have a set of directories that you work in. Typing out the names of those dirs in full can be tedious.
A graphical keyboard that can be used by people with physical disabilties (it can also help them to use other X11 applications that require keyboard input) and/or people who just prefer to type things without a keyboard. The user presses keys on an onscreen keyboard that will either be entered into a simple text editor that GTKeyboard provides, or into an app that the user specifies by clicking on the window. I/O can currently be redirected to a file, and short cuts for frequent actions are put into the menus. The program also contains extensive shortcuts to speed up editing: both regular editing shortcuts and web-authoring/programming shortcuts that speed up data entry.
hebOCR (formerly HOCR) is a Hebrew character recognition c/c++ library. includes three demo applications:
  • hocr - command line Hebrew OCR tool.

Joy Mouse
A program, or daemon for GNU/Linux, which converts incoming joystick data to mouse data, so that you can use your joystick/joypad as a mouse device in, gpm or any other program that needs mouse data (even games).
Joyd lets you execute commands via a joystick or joypad attached to your computer. You can bind commands to single buttons. movements of your stick, or combinations of the two. One simple possibility would be to reboot when your keyboard is hung. It can use any device supported by the Linux Joystick Driver. You can test the joystick status in your own shell scripts by using helper applications.
KDE Accessibility
* 2016 - Now, kdeaccessibility, like all monolitich tarballs, has been split into separate repositories. Right now the accessibility-related programs shipped with KDE Applications are jove, kaccessible, kmag, kmousetool and kmouth. KDE Accessibility is a set of assistive technologies for the KDE desktop. It currently consists of three applications: KMagnifier, KMouseTool, and KMouth. 'kmousetool' clicks the mouse for you, so you don't have to. It works with any mouse or pointing device. The amount of time it waits before it clicks is adjustable, of course, and is by default just half a second. KMouseTool can also drag the mouse. 'KMagnifier' is a screen magnifier. It magnifies the area around the mouse pointer or optionally a user-defined area. Additionally it offers to save the magnified screen shots to disk. 'KMouth' lets people who have lost their voice make their computers speak for them. It has a text input field and speaks the sentences that you enter. It also has support for user-defined phrase books.
KeyTouch is a program which allows you to easily configure the extra function keys of your keyboard. This means that you can define, for every individual function key, what to do if it is pressed. When you buy a new keyboard a CD-ROM will probably included. This CD-ROM contains software to configure the extra function keys (the image above shows an example of extra function keys) of your keyboard with. The problem however is that most of the times the software is not available for GNU/linux. KeyTouch is the solution to this problem. It allows you to easily configure the extra funtion keys of your keyboard. KeyTouch is the first (and only) program of its kind that perfectly works together with Linux kernel 2.6.
'Lazyread' auto-scrolls files or command output to the screen. It features different scroll modes, configurable scroll speed and colors, the ability to pause and search, and more. It can render text, HTML, PDF, gzip, tar, zip, ar, bzip2, MS-Word, nroff (man pages), binary executables, directories, .deb, .so, .rpm, piped output from other programs, and more.
LibStroke is a stroke translation library. Strokes are motions of the mouse that can be interpreted by a program as a command. Strokes are used extensively in CAD programs to select tools or perform actions; they are an extremely natural human-computer interface.
'Libbraille' makes it easy to access Braille displays and terminals. It can write text on a Braille display, directly draw Braille dots, or get the value of pressed keys. It is compatible with a wide range of Braille displays, and can autodetect some of them. The README, included with the distribution, lists the Braille dispays that 'libbraille' supports.
Lynx is a Web browser for users on both UNIX and VMS platforms who are connected to those systems via cursor-addressable, character-cell terminals or emulators (including VT100 terminals and desktop-based software packages emulating VT100 terminals, such as Kermit, Procomm, etc.). Lynx will display HTML documents containing links to files on the local system, as well as files on remote systems running http, gopher, ftp, wais, nntp, finger, or cso/ph/qi servers, and services accessible via logins to telnet, tn3270 or rlogin accounts.
Ocrad Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Ocrad is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program based on a feature extraction method. It reads a bitmap image in pbm format and produces text in byte (8-bit) or UTF-8 formats. It includes a layout analyser able to separate the columns or blocks of text normally found on printed pages.
OCRE is an optical character recognition (OCR) system that reads an image file and writes ASCII or Unicode characters.
'OneFinger' is a general-purpose GUI for composing CLI commands with the mouse. Although entirely graphical, it does not attempt to hide the underlying CLI language. It increases your productivity over hand typing by caching commands typed into terminals (which tend to be highly repetitive). You can select repeated commands from a list, ordered by last usage time. It includes an integrated file browser that helps you insert filenames without typing them. and lets you see only those programs that make sense with a given file.
Orca is a screen reader for Gnome that tries to create a consistant user experience across multiple applications that use objects in different ways, and lets users quickly reach information not easily reachable through keyboard navigation commands. Orca defines a set of default behaviors (reactions to application events) and key bindings (reaction to user key presses). These can be overwritten on a per-application basis. Orca creates a script object for each running application, which merges both the default behaviors and key bindings, and the application specific ones. It also provides the infrastructure to activate and deactivate scripts and the various services accessible from within the scripts.
This is a candidate for deletion: broken link to home page and software, can't find it hosted elsewhere, my email to the author was returned to sender, and the Internet Archive did not save the software files. Danm (talk) 11:04, 16 October 2017 (EDT) 'reed,' designed as a reader for etexts, displays text one line at a time, and scrolls it automatically at a speed set by the user. Features include standard pager functions, multiple buffers, speed adjustment, backwards and multiline scrolling, searching and search highlighting, and persistant bookmarks.
Rush Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Rush is a restricted user shell, for systems on which users are to be provided with only limited functionality or resources. Administrators set user rights via a configuration file which can be used to limit, for example, the commands that can be executed, CPU time, or virtual memory usage. The present restricted shell is an alternative to the well known rssh package, which provides similar capabilities.
Skipper has two parts. One runs outside the X Window System, takes control of all input devices, and provides highly user configurable processing of the inputs to convert whatever movements the person can make into one or two dimensional movements and clicks. The other part runs inside X, and provides highly user configurable on-screen menus of useful actions. The two parts communicate, to provide an environment where the usual GUI effectively runs inside another computer, which is specialised to the user's available movements. This provides full access to all legacy applications for people with as little as one detectable voluntary movement.
'speechd-el' is a complete speech output system for Emacs. It provides an Emacs Lisp library for easy access to a selected subset of Speech Dispatcher functions, and, using that library, provides speech support for Emacs to Emacs users. It can make Emacs either a completely speech enabled application suitable for visually impaired users or it can speak only in certain situations or when asked. Users need not customize each particular Emacs function to make it speak; most built-in and external Emacs packages produce speech output immediately, without any special support. Almost no change of standard Emacs behavior, and no interference with user settings. The package cooperates fully with Speech Dispatcher.
'synergy2' lets users share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s). Just move the mouse off the edge of a screen to move to another screen; keyboard and mouse input is then redirected to the other screen. You can also cut and paste between systems and have screensavers activate/deactivate in concert.
Tux Paint
Tux Paint is a simple, easy-to-use drawing program for children ages 2 and up. It provides a fixed canvas size, one-click saving and thumbnail-based browsing and loading. Large icons, simple labels and prompts, and the ability to display only uppercase characters and disable features like printing, quitting, and certain prompts make it easy for very young children and the disabled. Tools include a paintbrush, lines, shapes, text too, a large eraser, a rubber stamp tool with dozens of pre-drawn and photographic images, and a collection of "magic" special effects tools. Multiple levels of undo and redo are available. A cartoon version of "Tux," the Linux penguin helps explain what's going on. Additional stamps, fonts and brushes can be added easily. Tux Paint has been translated into nearly 20 languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and British English.
'uControl' gives you the ability to take those useless keys, that you're certain would have been better fashioned as something else, and turn them into something useful. It started out as a simple hack to remap the caps lock key to a control key, but has since evolved into a fairly sophisticated means of not only remapping modifier keys, but giving your trackpad a virtual scroll wheel, or giving lefties a sensible mouse, or giving people with disabilities the ability to type with one hand.
