Eye tracking is probably the quickest, easiest and most comfortable way to operate a computer with assistive technology. It helps thousands of individuals, some suffering from e.g. a spinal cord injury or ALS, lead more independent and happier lives.
It does so by allowing you to access a computer and the Internet using only your eyes – no mouth sticks, switches or head mouse needed. Simply look at the computer screen and control the mouse cursor with your eye movement. It is fast, ergonomic and gives you access to the many ways that a computer can enrich your life.
Windows Control is the software that enables computer access on a Windows PC via eye gaze and switch input, replacing the standard keyboard and mouse. It comes included with the PCEye Plus and EyeR dongle, providing the most efficient and ergonomic way to access your computer with assistive technology.
This next generation Windows Control is only for use with our peripheral eye trackers: PCEye Go, Explore, Mini and Plus. It can not be installed alongside Classic Tobii Gaze Interaction Software or Gaze Point.
We focused on your needs and input to create features that really make your life easier. Consistency throughout our portfolio, a great user experience and full control for you were just some of our most important goals.
All settings and features in the next generation Windows Control are gaze enabled. This means you have the ability to calibrate as well as change dwell time, users, languages, input methodology and much more by yourself. Fully gaze enabled settings means total control for you.
The calibration process has been redesigned and further improved. It now features a "pop the dot" calibration, which is even more engaging and fun. During the process, you can look away from the screen and then return and continue from where you stopped. No assistance is needed here, allowing you to take full control.
To quickly access all of those important eye tracking settings, you now have a controller window directly on the screen. The new controller window is always available on the screen and lets you start/pause eye tracking or pop up the track status to check your position. It also provides direct access to the settings for further adjustments.
Even more settings make it possible for you to define your best individual setup: Early eye gaze users can increase the taskbar width and reduce the number of tasks to only one, which simplifies selection enormously. Experienced users, on the other hand, can lower the dwell time or add more buttons to the taskbar in order to increase efficiency and speed. All adjustments can be done by yourself, which can help to avoid frustration and miscommunication.
Utilize the full potential of Windows 10 with the brand-new Windows Control Shortcuts. All important Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 access features are gathered in the shortcuts panel for quick and full Windows control.
The interface is simple and clear, which makes it fast and comfortable to access the volume control, cut/copy and paste, access desktop, minimize/maximize and much more.
Besides the essential Windows functions, you can also launch additional programs from the shortcuts panel. You have direct access to Virtual Remote (IR control) Windows Speech Recognition (voice control), Cortana – and many more in the near future.
Once selected in the taskbar, the shortcut panel will fade into the screen and is only there when you need it. It fades out conveniently as soon as the task is selected or stays pinned for some tasks like volume up/down.
Within Windows Control, you now have the ability to control IR devices in your surroundings remotely. Choose your favorite TV program, let your music band play as loud as you want and enjoy toys like remote controlled cars. Virtual Remote is the software, integrated into Windows Control, that provides two pathways to setting up an IR connection:
Switching between different remote controls is easy, so you always have direct access to programmed IR remotes.
Tobii Dynavox eye tracking devices and Windows Control can help you controlling your surroundings, pursuing interests and education as well as staying entertained.

We want to create a single unified experience when using any Tobii Dynavox software title, so that working between them feels seamless and effortless.

Color schemes are adapted automatically to Windows 10, merging it perfectly and making the software feel like it is a part of Windows, and it is now even easier to find your way around due to increased conformity and better usability.
Getting started with Windows Control is easier than ever before. With the brand new Configuration Guide you follow 3 simple steps that guide you through the setup process. First, type in your license code, then set up the eye tracker and calibration properly and finalize with your user registration. This will send you directly to a comprehensive, but easy to follow tutorial that includes several videos, images and helpful information about getting started with Windows Control.

The entire software and especially the Windows Control Shortcuts are built to be flexible while keeping future improvements in mind. This way, we can adjust and modify the shortcuts according to the latest innovations as well as your needs and preferences. Windows Control is compatible with most of our eye tracking hardware which ensures that the software will support you on your journey and you don’t need to adapt constantly.
