    It's not the best program, Ellie;

    You can write and store files in "Notepad" which is on my window 7 and probably on Andrews windows 10.

    I don't use it and can still use a couple of fingers. I think that there must be better free ones and if not maybe better to buy something.

    Have you got any speech therapist that you can get info from sop you don't waste time and money.

    Love Terry

    I use the Eye X; it was developed for gaming. It is sold as an SDK - Software Developer's Kit - and one has to download drivers, but that is straightforward.

    Andrew,

    I checked and Optikey does support the Tobii 4C eye tracker.

    Also supports: Tobii EyeX, The Eye Tribe and myGaze.

    got my laptop waiting for eye tracker to arrive . been using optikey, it's good but annoying that you can't save phrases and sentences like you can on the Grid . had a go on click2speak you can save some sentences but it keeps crashing are there any other free programs available . Thanks Andrew
