Look to Learn – The Quickest, Easiest Way to Learn Eye Gaze

The autonoME is equipped with the ability to use various input methods for operation.  One very popular input method is eye gaze.  Since the autonoME is both an environmental control unit (ECU) and speech generating device (SGD), eye gaze can be used for communication and tasks such as turning on lights, controlling the bed, calling a nurse/caregiver, surfing the web, etc. The eye gaze does take some getting used to, and one of the best (and fun) ways to get proficient in using it is by installing Look to Learn.  This software – created specifically for eye gaze – features 40 activities to help you get started:
