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.
