I am on the assistive technology committee for my school district. I
have tested a number of one handed keyboards. The best one I have seen
is called the Frog Pad manufactured by a small company in Houston, TX.
They sell right and left handed models. It takes some getting used to
but seemed to be a good solution. NASA is experimenting with it. It is
useful for aviators. They can velcro it to their thigh and use it for
one handed data entry. The computer sees it as just another PC
compatible keyboard so it should work with emacs. Check it out at:
