"The Smyle Mouse has given me the freedom to go back to school and work towards another degree. It has also given me the self-confidence to look for a job and know that I can compete with the other applicants."

I never thought I would say a computer mouse changed my life, but it has. I suffered a C5/C6 spinal cord injury in 2016 rendering my hands completely useless. All my life I have been extremely tech savvy and love anything having to do with computers. After my accident I found a couple of computer applications that allowed me to continue using my laptop. It was great to be able to use a computer again, but it was very frustrating to have to use a narrowing grid to select each mouse click. Then a friend told me about Smyle Mouse head controlled mouse software. I downloaded the free trial and I was hooked. The setup was incredibly easy. I just started the software, selected my camera, did a quick calibration and then I was off and running. I can operate my computer up to 400% faster than with the narrowing grid software. Now all I have to do is look where I want to click and smile. All of the settings are completely customizable to accommodate my quickness and accuracy with the software. Here are just a few of the things the Smyle Mouse head controlled mouse lets me do:

  • Order tickets to a movie without the screen timing out
  • Quickly fill out a lengthy survey
  • Click and drag different windows on the screen
  • Highlights sentences within a block of text
  • Subconsciously improve my mood by always smiling

The Smyle Mouse has given me the freedom to go back to school and work towards another degree. It has also given me the self-confidence to look for a job and know that I can compete with the other applicants. I have tried many other point and click programs designed for people with disabilities. None of them even come close to the Smyle Mouse. Smyle Mouse’s head control is 10x more accurate and I don’t have to feel embarrassed by putting something on my face for the mouse to track. Not only has the Smyle Mouse given me back my independence, it has also given me hope for a better future. Thank you Smyle Mouse!

I have progressive MS and have become quadriplegic, and slowly lost the use of my hands. What I like so much about Smyle Mouse head controlled mouse software is that it has been so easy for me to learn as compared to the eye tracking programs that I’ve used in the past. It has opened up the world to me by instantly allowing me to once again to access my keyboard and work.

"It is no exaggeration to say that SmyleMouse has improved the quality of her life by orders of magnitude." Scrib (Friend of Carolyn)

Carolyn (CPA), United Statues. [Multiple Sclerosis]

Dear friends at percept-d.com:

I am writing to offer heartfelt thanks for Smyle Mouse and to let you know what a hugehuge difference Smyle Mouse has made in the life of my friend Carolyn, who purchased Smyle Mouse a couple of weeks ago after taking advantage of your trial offer.

First, a bit of background. Carolyn has MS and has been bedridden for several years. Her MS has progressed to the point that she has very little control of her limbs and cannot use a computer mouse or track ball at all; however, she does have full control of her head and neck. Carolyn is a very smart woman (she was a CPA), and she remains fully competent and alert, so you can imagine how frustrating it has been for her not to be able to operate a computer and to have to depend on someone else for everything—even just pausing a video on the laptop computer on the rolling stand over her bed.
In trying to find some way that she could control her computer, I investigated every possibility I could find. Windows voice control offered some potential; however, Carolyn can speak only softly, so speech recognition was not workable.
Then I found Smyle Mouse. Though the purchase of your software is a very significant investment, your policy of offering a free 14-day trial—that was a critical factor for us—and the excellent demo on your website led us to try it out. And are we glad we did! I first signed up for a trial myself and used the program on my computer to make sure that I thought Carolyn could handle it. Then I downloaded the program and installed it on her laptop. I made adjustments in the appropriate settings (particularly with regard to sensitivity), showed her how to use it, and helped her practice. I also set up the virtual keyboard on her laptop so that she could make it visible with a click of the Smyle Mouse.
That was last week. We hadn’t talked with her in a week, but, after visiting her today, my wife said, “You should have seen the big smile on Carolyn’s face!! She paused the video stream as soon as I walked in. She was so happy telling me that she has been selecting videos to watch, paying bills, and ordering things on line (a box containing one order arrived when I was there)!” What an incredible difference Smyle Mouse has made in Carolyn’s life!
As you know, a feeling of autonomy—or, at least, some control over one’s situation—is a critical element for anyone’s happiness. Smyle Mouse has given Carolyn a degree of autonomy she has not had in years, so you have had an incredible positive impact on her life—and thus also on all of those who support and interact with her. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
One additional bit of information that you may wish to offer to others: Carolyn has another complication in that she tires easily and is most comfortable when she is lying flat (not sitting up). So I found a laptop stand that elevates her laptop base to about a 40-degree angle. I was then able to adjust the angle of the laptop screen so that her webcam has a good view of her face when she is lying flat.
The difference you have made in Carolyn’s life has no doubt played out in many other places and scenarios, but I wanted to be sure you knew what a difference you have made in this one case.

“It’s very helpful. It helps me with my school work and homework. And it makes me smarter and smarter.”

Kennedy Ross (2nd Grade Student), U.S.A. [Spinal Cord Injury]

Kennedy Ross smiles a whole lot when she has a computer in front of her.
It’s not only because the 8-year-old is happy.
She smiles because that’s how Kennedy makes things happen on her computer screen using software called Smyle Mouse.
“It’s very helpful,” said Kennedy, who’s in second grade. “It helps me with my school work and homework. And it makes me smarter and smarter.”

Smyle Mouse already has made a big difference in Kennedy’s life, said her mom, Kiara Whitmire.

“Smyle Mouse has allowed Kennedy to be more independent and allows her to do her school work and her class work,” Whitmire said. “Before, her nurse would have to write everything down for her. But now she’s able to do all the things on her own. She doesn’t have to whisper to her nurse. She doesn’t have to wait for the nurse to write it down.”

“Without Smyle Mouse she was more conservative. She didn’t really want to do much or she would get frustrated a lot,” Whitmire said. “But with Smyle Mouse, I see that she has a lot more confidence.”

“I lost the use of my arms about two years ago so whenever I used the computer I needed assistance. So I only spent about 30 minutes a day on my laptop. Now after Smyle Mouse, I use my laptop over nine hours a day without assistance.”

“I lost the use of my arms about two years ago so whenever I used the computer I needed assistance. So I only spent about 30 minutes a day on my laptop. Now after Smyle Mouse, I use my laptop over nine hours a day without assistance. I watch movies, read books, browse the internet, listen to music, read/write email, play games, use my laptop as an universal remote controlling my TV, stereo, and cable.

I was attracted to Smyle Mouse because it was the only program I found which let me control the mouse without dwell clicking and I also thought the price was reasonable compared with the other available options.”
