Have broken right wrist!!

  misery 21:45 26 Jun 2006

How can I do my usual crosswords? I have a scanner and MS officeXP and, as you can see, can type, but slowly with left hand. How can I copy and fill in the crossword please?

MS Paint?

Scan in as a picture and use the text tool?

I dont mean to imply anything but exactly how did you damage your right wrist??

  De Marcus™ 20:29 27 Jun 2006

I would imagine the majority of broken wrists are from a fall, whereby the hands are extended as a natural response to prevent further injury, unfortunately the wrist is the area that takes the brunt of the body weight.

What a bizare posting, type with your left hand.

He has already stated that he is typing with his left hand.What is so bizarre?

I think he meant writing onto printed versions of crosswords but I may be wrong as usual.

It could also have been caused by continual usage of a "heavy" mouse. It used to be called RSI.
