John Doggett with Lightwriter

A paralyzed John Doggett using a Lightwriter in 2001

A Lightwriter is a dual-display communication aid for use by a patient with severe paralysis. The device incorporates a keyboard, connected to a small finger-clicker for the paralyzed patient. Two display screens are included in the machine; one of these is a narrow display that is built into the keyboard, above it, and faces the person using the device, while the other is a standalone monitor that faces the message recipient. The narrow screen includes an array of letters, punctuation marks and pictorial controls.

In 2001, a Lightwriter machine was used by FBI Special Agent John Doggett, after he was shot by Erwin Timothy Lukesh subsequent to the arrival of both men from a parallel universe from which Doggett had originated. The Lightwriter was placed next to Doggett's bed at some point after he regained consciousness and demonstrated that he could use his finger to convey messages in morse code. He used the Lightwriter during conversations with his FBI partner, Monica Reyes, the alternate version of whom had been killed by Lukesh in the parallel universe, and their discussions included Agent Reyes' realization that the injured Doggett had come from a parallel universe.
