    Type in Windows report.com / text to speech apps for Windows 10 , there are quite a few but as I'm autistic I have a very mild learning disability so I can't perceive which one is ideal for you .

    They are Read Aloud apps i.e.they enable articles, books etc to be read aloud. They are not for text to speech purposes with an AT onscreen keyboard unfortunately.

    Andrew, can you add phrases to the dictionary, but is it a Grid? No.

    Click2Speak is usually stable; any idea why it's crashing? Look at Task Manager when it crashes for clues on background processes.

    It is easy & straightforward to install the eye tracker. Did you download the Tobii software / drivers?

    If this is the first time you have used your eye tracker with OptiKey you will need to tell OptiKey which device you want to use. Open OptiKey's Management Console (with OptiKey focussed press ALT + M) and select the "Pointing & Selecting” tab.


    Change the "Source" (under "Pointing”) to your tracking device.

    Leave the "Key selection source" and “Point selection source" set to "Fixation" for now.

    Click "OK" to save your changes. OptiiKey may need to restart, but your changes will be saved.
