Steve tells his own story of finding a good way of saying more things to more people more easily
A Communication and Control System for people with complex physical disabilities. It enables user to communicate using only the movement of eyes. It is being used to write books,attend school and enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities.
A video camera focuses on
the pupil of the user's eye, tracking its movement. To "press" a key
on the screen, the user looks at the key for a specified time, prompting the
computer to take the appropriate action. This assistive technology enables
people to use their eyes to operate a computer and access the Internet and
e-mail, communicate, operate a telephone, a person can synthesize speech,
control his environment (lights, appliances, etc.).
Below is the link of Steve’s blog in which he makes entry using his eyegaze computer:http://steveevans35.blogspot.in/2011/09/controlling-computers-with-eyegaze.html
Can we use and implement this assistive technology as a tool to make our elections more accessible to everyone?
