Eye Gaze Technology
We have had the recent addition of an Eye Gaze computer for use with our children. Eye Gaze technology replaces the standard mouse so you can use your eyes to:
- Control your computer or communication aid
- Use environmental controls
- Access computer games.
What is Eye Gaze?
The technology tracks your eye to see where you are looking. You can then ‘click’ where you are looking by using a ‘dwell click’. The user needs to simply hold their gaze steady in an area for a predefined amount of time. This action produces a ‘virtual’ click.
Eye Gaze is useful for those who:
- Cannot use their hands to access the computer
- Find accessing a computer slow and difficult using other access methods such as a switch.
