    Martin, if you're buying the hardware yourself, have a look at the Tobii 4C eye tracker - available from £121.18 on eBay, more on Amazon, but < a tenth of the price of the one you're looking at.

    It doesn't have the environmental controls, but the EyeR dongle can be bought separately (£199) if needed.

    You install the drivers when you plug in the Tobii 4C and it can be used with Window 10's own eye control software or free open source software.

    It's a DIY solution, but it gives full PC access for a fraction of the cost of traditional AAT offerings. It's what I use.

    Love Ellie.

    Does your speech therapist service have a preference about which app you use? Mine loan out an Ipad with Predictable pre-installed and they told me that other devices they use can take our voice. I didn't borrow an Ipad because I already have an Ipad Air2 and I downloaded Predictable to that. It's intuitive to use so straightforward. But speak with your local speech therapy service for advice and if they have a preference. Then you'd be future proofing being able to use your recorded voice. Good luck. Lynne

    Good luck with getting a voice very close to your natural speaking voice. If you aren't happy don't give up. Email them and they can help you tweak it by getting you to record your own list of names, places and phrases. I did that and got a very good result. Lynne

    Yay! I just completed my 1600 ModelTalker sentence recordings. I found it best to move on after two or three attempts at difficult sentences the go back to all the 'yellows' at the end. The last 30 or so were cruel i the extreme!

    Anyway, I have now requested my synthetic voice from the ModelTalker lab.

    Hi Martin,

    The App works on Windows with (inexpensive) Tobii eye trackers. There are plans to develop camera based eye tracking software by Therary Box.

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Martin;

    I'm pretty sure that you can get eye gaze systems that will play it if you need to use it hands free.

    It's great to only pay if you need it because some of us never need to use speech devices.

    LOve Terry

    I downloaded my voice to the Predictable app on my Ipad as recommended by my speach therapist. I'm not using it yet though. It's there when I need it. Lynne

    Once you complete your recording you will receive an instruction to upload it to the modeltalker website and following this they will contact you to advise the finished product is ready. I’m not sure about payment arrangements since I did mine when it was free.

    I think the charge ($100 = £80) only applies when you want to download your finished voice. You click on the 'Voices' tab then on 'Make Payment'.

    I was wondering if any special hardware was needed to play your voice. I've still got pretty good use of my hands but what happens when they start to become unusable?

    I am now making reasonable progress with MTVR (ModelTalker Voice Recorder) and I have recorded 400 of the 1600 sentences required. For forward planning purposes, can anyone tell me what happens when I have completed the sentences and ModelTalker has built my new voice?

    I had all sorts of problems with the web-based version of the recorder, but when I switched to the stand-alone version MTVR I managed a lot better. There is a link to download MTVR on the ModelTalker web page, under the 'Recording' tab.
