Switch Access. This activity, like most Doorway activities, can be operated by switches. Generally, in two switch mode, a switch that emulates pressing the space bar moves the highlight on by one position and the Enter key confirms the action. In single switch mode, a switch press emulates the Space Bar. The learner can access all the same functions of the activity, but the timing of the focus moving forward must be set to an interval that suits the learner.
