Discussion by Disabilities
This feature allows blind users perceive the reaction to their action in a form that is easily perceivable by them. A multi-sensory feedback gives them assurance that the system they are dealing with is working properly.
Adjustable press/click settings allow people with physical disabilities to tailor mouse and trackpad behavior to their needs, which may vary greatly from one individual to another. This feature may be most helpful for those with limited mobility who cannot make large mouse movements or to filter out erratic movements caused by hand tremors.
