An eye on accessing the internet
The Rix Centre, based in Bristol, is working on a project to develop ‘head and eye tracking technology’ to enable people with disabilities who have difficulty using conventional keyboard and mouse access to computers, to go on-line and benefit from the opportunities that digital technologies can provide.
The project aims to test a variety of low-cost or cost-free software packages and explore their potential for users with limited or no use of their arms in various settings such as in school, work and home.
The low-cost availability of this technology will benefit individuals, families, schools and colleges across the UK and ultimately these advantages will be shared internationally via the web.
