Windows Based Communication Aids
Why Use a Specialist Communication Aid
If typing becomes difficult, there are different ways to ‘input’ what you want to say. One example is eye gaze technology, where the computer tracks your eye movement, essentially allowing a person to type using their eyes. Other types of input methods can include switches that are pressed by different parts of your body or a head mouse that lets someone control a computer mouse through head movement or gesture. This technology is very specialised and is often provided through your speech and language therapist, or a specialist AAC centre.
