Here is an intriguing possibility for people with cognitive disabilities to access the Web using a simplified computer interface and a significantly simple computer. The litl’s interface does not use menus, folders, icons or overlapping windows. Navigating the interface is performed with just a couple of buttons. The first third of this video demonstrates the interface.

The computer itself is simplified. It automatically handles all updates, patches, plug-ins and fixes. Supposedly, users do not have to worry about viruses either. The litl is billed as “maintenance free”. I imagine this too could be a boon for people with cognitive disabilities, indeed for all people, because the complexity of maintaining a computer would be vastly reduced.

One thought on “Simplified Computer Interface: Litl Webbook”
The litl is very impressive with the number of features it delivers while at the same time being so simple in design–right from the packaging, directions, and principals of operation. I would think that using web sites designed with considerations for people with intellectual disabilities (such as the one you plan to build) and this device, one could take a major step at bringing the internet to many people who would otherwise not be able to enjoy it.
