    Youtube Channel

    As part of my awareness raising efforts I've launched a Youtube channel

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK5...CEkj6RjfzJ4Mhw

    i've just posted a review of how i control my Macbook and iMac with a product called iTracker which only costs $35 and has given me back full control of my computers:

    I'm now working on a series of videos on ventilation and will be publishing reviews of any equipment i find useful.

    Hi Calum,

    Thanks for putting up the iTracker video. I recently posted about it, but being an anything but Apple girl I couldn't see it in action. Even though I am not a Mac/iPad user, it's good to see OS X compatible tech, so much is Windows only.

    I like to keep up with AAT and use the excellent EyeX myself.

    Hi Ellie

    I'm also an Eyegaze/Eyex user - as i wear specs i find it a bit temperamental - that said when it works its great.

    As you say very few AAT systems work with Mac IOS - another benefit of the iTracker is it strengthens up my neck muscles.

    All the best

    Hi Calum;

    There's at least five different eye gaze cameras, I don't know if any are better with specs but some are probably better for some people/situations than others, judging what the manufactures representatives said at the recent show.

    Love Terry

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.

    Calum, you're the only other AAT user of the EyeX I've come across! My specs wearing nephew recently got one for gaming

    That's a shame about your specs interfering w/ the Tobii EyeX, it's normally pretty good as it has a special calibration setting for "corrective lens". It must be good to have a Windows PC for EyeX and a Mac for iTracker - access to every form of AAT!!

    When you use EyeX, given it's a Software Developer's Kit, what mouse control/onscreen keyboard & Windows version do you use?

    I'd really love to spread the word that people can use a cheap eye tracker with their Windows tablet or laptop and free software, rather than either fundraise or wait months for an overpriced eyegaze integrated PC. (Bearing in mind many with ALS/MND don't have sufficient head control for a camera mouse)

    Thanks,
    Ellie.

    Hi Ellie

    I just got my EyeX last week - i haven't spent much time on it yet - i'll report back in a few weeks !! - I use a Lenovo thinkpad and Windows 10.

    Re iTracker - it still works pretty well with limited head control. I can still use it in bed with my head pinned to my pillow. I use a very adjustable laptop table:

    The AAT game is not great with to many vested interests - so entry level kit like iTracker gets ignored as there's no money to be made !!
