Tobii Dynavox Launches PCEye Plus with Speech Recognition
Tobii Dynavox, a provider of assistive technology, has launched PCEye Plus, a device that combines advanced eye tracking, switch and infrared control with speech recognition.
The PCEye Plus connects via USB to Windows computers, giving the disabled full control of any standard software and the surrounding environment.
Tobii Dynavox eye tracking technology allows users to access computers, surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, turn on the lights or TV, and even make spreadsheets, using only their eyes. With a simple glance at a computer screen, a mouse cursor can be controlled through eye movement.
Verbal users can use speech recognition for dictation through an integrated four-array microphone system.
"The PCEye Plus provides users with an unprecedented level of freedom and control," said Fredrik Ruben, president of Tobii Dynavox, in a statement. "The technology and the new Windows Control software is faster, more accurate, and has a wider range of use than any of our previous products, giving our users a true ability to explore the world and communicate with others."
