Abstract

This study examined the effect of hand used to access mouse vs. touchscreen in both normal adult individuals (NAI) and persons with aphasia (PWA) on the overall score from the Computerized Revised Token Test (CRTT) (McNeil et al., 2008). Both access modes were highly correlated with each other in both groups. PWA performed significantly worse than the NAI on both access modes, regardless of hand used. The touchscreen access mode generated significantly higher scores than the mouse for both groups independent of hand. The correlation coefficients within hand and between access modes were significant and high for both groups.
