    Grid 3 v Communicator 5??

    Hi fellow eye gazers

    I am currently using the Grid but find it frustrating when 'talking" because it spells out the word and is a bit laborious
    Maybe I need to change some settings but I don't know how to?
    Does anyone use Communicator 5?
    I am interested to know the difference and pros and cons of both

    Hi Sarah,

    I use a DIY eye gaze solution, so can't say if Grid 3 or Communicator 5 is better, sorry.

      Grid offers over 60 English voices as well as many more international voices. Speech settings allow these voices to be configured to suit a user’s needs. To access Speech settings In Grid explorer, select Menu > Settings > Speech (The menu can also be accessed by pressing F10) Speaking Hear different voices speaking out loud […]

    They also have an online Chat facility if you need help.

    It's a shame you didn't get help on how to use it! There are some video tutorials online.

    Good luck.
