This paper focuses on a particular kind of disabled user, the motor impaired. Using evolutionary prototyping in conjunction with SSM a system has been developed in an iterative way in line with users’ feedback. The results showed that by focusing on dynamic processes of interaction, and placing the power in the interface itself all motor impaired users could use one system, something that is not possible in mainstream browsers. Using an onscreen keyboard and virtual click the number of clicks required to write a word were reduced to zero. This paper demonstrated the issue of point and click for the motor impaired and the artefact proved that this could be overcome. By empowering users with freedom and flexibility complexities were broken down as were accessibility barriers.
