Digital Cinematography graduate Sady approaches video-editing headfirst. Unlike other editors, Sady controls FinalCut Pro using a switch access scanning system.
Sady, who was born with cerebral palsy, has two switches situated on either side of her wheelchair headrest. She controls those switches by moving her head to make a selection on her main computer. The system is hooked up to all of her devices – from her wheelchair to her iPhone. Once she selects which device she wants to control, she’s presented with a list of functions and shortcuts that allow her to control each device or program. Using this system, she can text, email, talk on the phone (through automated voice software), and much more.
