Hi, everyone. My name is Stephen Conlon.
I attend St. Vincent’s Centre on Navan Road, where I do a lot of activities, one of which is using the computer.
When I use the computer I use a Trackerball,
this allows me to move the cursor on the screen easily. I also use a special keyboard called BigKeys LX.
I like using this keyboard because the letters are easier for me to see. I typed this article using the big keys.
The programs I used helped me learn to use the computer. FIRST KEYS program helped me learn where the letters are on the keyboard. BAILEY’S BOOK HOUSE helped me with my reading skills. I also used Microsoft word to practise my typing skills. To practise my number skills I used a program called NUMBER PICS.
I now am able to use the Internet. I use email to keep in touch with everyone, especially my family.
I love using the computer. It helps me learn new skills and practise the skills that I have learnt already.
