Much past effort has investigated how to adapt a user interface to a different output device or modality. Far less attention has focused on the adaptations needed to handle a different input device or modality. We present a tool for automatically modifying a graphical user interface to enable or improve the use of a variety of input devices for which the interface was not designed. This can allow someone with a disability or in a unique environment to use existing applications that were previously inaccessible.
