Disco is intended to amuse, develop switch skills and develop the understanding of cause and effect.
The images and animations in the program are specifically chosen for older children, adolescents and adults. The activity level ranges from a single press to gain an animated reward to many key presses to build up a scene.
Up to eighteen pictures are shown in the menu. They can be selected by clicking on them with the mouse pointer, or by scanning them with the scan box. When a picture has been selected a full screen animation with sound is shown. The animation can be stopped by pressing escape or optionally by pressing any key. Alternatively, the animation will stop on its own and the menu will reappear. The animation reward can be achieved by either one switch/key press, two presses or many presses, depending on how the options are set.
