Or you could use the Brush tool to color in the white areas; if you put a background picture in front of the canvas, you won t paint over the lines!

46 Clicker Paint User Guide - Example Activities To do this, add the color picture as the background picture.

For people unable to use a mouse alternative, keyboard, or touch screen, Clicker Paint is switch accessible. All the tools and colors can be scanned and selected with switches. Sticky Points can be scanned too, enabling switch users to apply the selected tool to areas of the canvas. To use Clicker Paint with switches, use the Crick USB Switch Interface to connect switches to your computer. You can use either one or two switches. To order the Crick USB Switch Interface, please contact us or see our website. Examples of accessible activities Matching activities use the Line tool to draw lines between Sticky Points: Fill activities set up Sticky Points in each of the white areas: 47

49 Clicker Paint User Guide - Using Special Access Stamping activities use a Sticky Points grid so the switch user can choose where to place the stamp. The Sticky Points can be scanned as row or column groups before individual Sticky Points are scanned: Reveal activities place Sticky Points at intervals so the picture is revealed as each Sticky Point is selected: How to use switches When using switches as an access method in Clicker Paint, a scan highlights the tools and Sticky Points in turn. You then press a switch to select and activate the highlighted item. If you are using one switch, the scan moves to the next cell automatically after a delay (which you can change). If using two switches, you can move the scan to the next cell with one switch and select a cell with the other. If you have this option selected, you can use the F7 and F8 keys on your keyboard to simulate switch presses. 48

50 Clicker Paint User Guide - Using Special Access Setting up switch access Open the Options menu and select User Access.
