What kinds of technologies do motor impaired people often use?

Hey Guys!
I’m trying to write an “intro to accessibility” talk for our company’s internal conference and I wanted to describe some assistive technologies that some people use besides screen readers. For example, people who can see but maybe use a keyboard or other input device to manipulate their computers.
I know of a few things, like eye tracking software that allows people to type by following eye movements and some people use dictation software but surely these can’t be the only things people use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
