Eye gaze is a way of accessing a computer or communication aid using a mouse that you control with your eyes. You can then select the item you are looking at by dwelling, blinking, or clicking with a switch.
Eye gaze technology uses cameras that pick up reflections from your pupils, and translates the movement of your eyes into mouse cursor movements.
It is used by people with conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease (ALS), Cerebal Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, spinal injuries, Rett Syndrome and people with profound or multiple disabilities.
At Hall School, we have two Eye Gaze tablets, which are used for communication and learning.
