INTRO TO CAUSE & EFFECT is a new Windows version of our older classic program Cause & Effect. Both sound and graphics were updated to take advantage of the latest technology. The program is designed to introduce the user to the computer and the switch. It is also designed to improve tracking ability of objects and increase the user's attention span.
Each time the user presses the switch or keyboard, large brightly colored geometric segments animate on the screen along with captivating sounds. Animation segments last for approximately 3 - 5 seconds. When the user presses the switch again, a new segment will appear. There are 35 segments in this program. If the user doesn't press the switch, an image of the switch appears on the screen to suggest to the user that the switch should be pressed.
Cause & Effect
- Look & Listen - Program #141 is a very basic cause & effect and visual tracking program. When the mouse, switch or space bar is pressed, an object will move across the screen while cheerful and lively music is playing in the background. The objects are large and colorful. Among the objects included are household items, cartoon images, foods, and many others. There are over 100 graphic objects included and over 35 different songs. The user can either press a switch, the space bar or click the mouse to initiate animation.
Look & Listen is very customizable and even lets you add your own graphics and songs. Songs are in Wave format and graphics are in JPEG format. Examples of some graphics you might add may include pictures of the user, their favorite toys or any picture taken from a digital camera, scanner, or even drawn with a paint program. You also have the ability to re-record the auditory prompt that reminds the student to press the switch, space bar or click the mouse. This is useful if you want the student to hear a familiar voice or even customize the prompt in a different language.
