some of the addons i use to play with my disabilities:healbot: being able to configure skills to single clicks or clicks with modifiers instead of keybindings and targetting/mouseover has greatly reduced the impact of healing or buffing on my hands. and being able to bind auto-follow of mouseover target with the mousewheel scroll is so helpful.omnicc: visual impairments make it so i can't see the built-in cd animation on icons. omnicc throws numerical cd durations on the icons in whatever color, size or font i need them to be in so i can see when things are actually on cd and for how long. otherwise i'd be squinting all the time. hard to play when you're squinting.fontifier: i can only read certain fonts adequately. fontifier will change all of the fonts throughout the game for me to what i can read, even in menus and the likes. can configure font size too. and it can work with other addons that don't have font options.omen: screen flashing borders when i get aggro or high threat. has audio for this too, though i can't always hear it well. the combination is what really helps me but it can be used for either or.hardware i use:sidewinderx6 keyboard for three sets of macro buttons, logitech g500 mouse for buttons and configurable weight so it doesn't aggravate my wrist. have modifiers, mount and autowalk bound to it to reduce impact on my hands.this is only a small list of what i use, and while people marvel at the sheer number of addons i use, each and every one is vital to my ability to play.this is with early onset arthritis that primarily effects my hands/wrists, fibromyalgia and visual/hearing impairments.also throwing another thank you out there for covering this - so many folks forget that disabled folks can be gamers too. just because you can't see it or you don't know about it doesn't mean it's not there!
