Assistiveware Legacy Products
If you're looking for KeyStrokes, SwitchXS, VisioVoice and Proloquo; with the release of MacOS High Sierra (10.13) Assistiveware has discontinued these products. Apple has incorporated mostly equivalent products within the MacOS operating system. In the case of KeyStrokes the feature is simply called Keyboard. For SwitchXS the feature is called Switch Control and for VisioVoice they are called VoiceOver and Zoom. Apple does not offer an equivalent to Proloquo, but the Mac has never proven to be a popular augmentative communication platform.
Apple has announced, "macOS High Sierra (10.13) is the last macOS release to support 32-bit apps without compromise." ALL macOS applications that Origin Instruments has ever distributed for Assistiveware are 32-bit apps. macOS 10.14 was released in September of 2018.
Origin Instruments will offer best effort support for Assistiveware products on compatible versions of macOS.
We have a startup guide for using Apple's built-in accessibility features for direct select with HeadMouse, and scanning with our switch interfaces and adaptive switches. There are numerous screen shots with explanations.
