The Power to be in control

Tobii Dynavox eye tracking technology has helped thousands of individuals, some suffering from a spinal cord injury or ALS, lead more independent and happier lives. It does so by allowing you to access a computer and the Internet using only your eyes – no mouth sticks, switches or head mouse needed.  Simply look at the computer screen and control the mouse cursor with your eye movement. It is fast, ergonomic and gives you access to the many ways that a computer can enrich your life.

Windows Control is the software that enables computer access on a Windows PC via eye gaze and switch input, replacing the standard keyboard and mouse.
