Mar 1st 2011 5:41PM I too have Cerebral Palsy, though it affects both my hands (my index fingers are the only ones that have any use, and sometimes my right thumb.) I can type fairly fast but doing so requires all of my attention, since I have to look at the keyboard. My left hand would generally press W, 1 and 2, while my right hand is used for the mouse (wheel with 2 side buttons.)
For the longest time I would just press 1 with castsequence macros, but the advent of priority rotations and reactive procs such as Overpower and RS made that difficult. I wound up having to make large 3x3 grids in the center of the screen, as the article suggests, to click. Even that had its problems as I hold down right mouse and W to move, meaning that I couldn't click my abilities and move. My reaction time is so bad that I usually wind up standing in fire.
The attitude of pugs these days and the importance of movement led to more than a few breakdowns over my usefulness compared to other players. I finally consulted the resident macro and UI wizard on one of the servers I play on. He helped me bind everything to my mouse in combination with castsequence macros, including using the wheel for abilities. I didn't want to at first, since it meant giving up my camera zoom, but it has made a world of difference. I can DPS simly by rolling my wheel back and forth now. It does have its kinks, but it's much better than where I was (and for healing, Healium is a miracle.)
I never comment on articles, but this one motivated me to dig up my password. Thanks for the great article, WI :)
