For many people who have difficulty physically using a computer, eye gaze technology can offer a quick and easy to understand way of accessing your favourite software.
What is eye gaze?
Eye gaze or eye tracking is a way of accessing your computer or communication aid using a mouse that you control with your eyes. Eye gaze follow your eyes with amazing accuracy to see where you are looking on the screen. You can then select the item you are looking at by dwelling (staring at the screen for a length of time), blinking or clicking with a switch.
Ysgol Ty Coch is currently using static and mobile eyegaze technologies across the school which have been funded by Friends of Ty Coch (FoTC). We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact of eye gaze for our pupils.
