Catch the Cow helps children and adults with physical disabilities, to learn to select pictures using a scanning device.
It allows teachers, clinicians or parents to assess whether a user can learn beginning skills for choice making through auto scanning. Direct touch can also be used and accuracy of the two modes can be compared. Initially the user selects one of two squares. Then the level of difficulty gradually increases to select a picture from multiple rows and columns.
Catch the Cow provides a large on-screen button for selection as shown. An option is provided to use it with an external switch that is compatible with the Apple Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard. The space, enter, ~, 1, 2, 3 or 4 key equivalents can be used to select.
Compatible Buetooth controllers and switches are available from RJ Cooper & Asoociates Inc. and Ablenet Inc.
This update enables Catch the Cow to run on an iPhone or an iPad and new preview videos. All features from the previous version including teacher options and switch control are preserved. This and some of our other iPad apps are being updated for iPhone use as the new phones have larger screens.
Catch the Cow is designed to assess a user's ability to make selections either directly or using a scan. It does NOT require the iOS switch accessibility option.

Not very engaging, cow moos when you touch it. You can't get out of the program to reset it. The screen size is small and displays in portrait.
Where did the cow go? I only get a black screen.
