The Eyes Have It: Eye-control and comprehensive communication solutions from DynaVox

  • Jason McCullough (DynaVox)

Eye-control enables users with significant physical disabilities to communicate, interact, and control computer functions using only their eyes. This brings new opportunities and improved quality of life for users who previously relied on slow and cumbersome alternatives for their communication and computing, such as scanning systems.

The basis of all communication is some type of language framework. That language framework should support novel or functional communication, as well as literacy development. To accomplish this objective, the language framework must provide a vocabulary and structure that is appropriate for the communicator’s age and ability, and the context or setting of the interaction.

This session will demonstrate how easy the new DynaVox eye-gaze system is to set up and use, and will demonstrate the custom designed InterAACt language framework which offers functional alternatives for someone controlling this communication and computing device with only their eyes!
