3 Using Tobii Dynavox Windows Control

Tobii Dynavox Windows Control makes it possible for the user to control a standard Windows desktop operating system with a two step selection method which reduces the risks of unwanted clicks. It also prevents the following of the mouse cursor with your gaze as opposed to the controlling of it (there is no floating mouse cursor in Windows Control).

1.

The first step is to select the desired Task from the docked Taskbar by looking at it.

2.

The second step is to look at the desired portion of the screen (or icon on the screen) where you want to execute the

Task. An automatic zoom function is enabled, ending in the selection of the icon or execution of the task.

All functions in Windows Control are Touch and Mouse enabled which makes it easier for a Caregiver or Assistant to help the user if needed. The Caregiver or Assistant can select a Function/Task or change the settings for the user much easier.

3.3

The Windows Control Taskbar

At the top of the Windows Control Taskbar there is a Track Status viewer. It allows you to verify that the eye tracker recognizes your eyes and that you are well positioned in front of the device.

The Task Buttons in the Windows Control Taskbar can be in three different modes as shown in Figure 3.2 The Modes for the

Windows Control Taskbar, page 10.

Normal (Unselected) - No Task Button for Windows Control is chosen.

Primary Selection (white) - The marked Task Button is selected and the Task will be executed after the automatic zoom when the user looks at the desired position on the screen or icon on it. If the selection method is set to Switch in the Windows Control Settings Dialog, the chosen Task Button will still remain active after executing the Task.

The Shortcuts Task will not perform any zooming.

Secondary Selection (Blue/white) - Same as Primary Selection but with a higher precision. Primary Selection means that the zoom will progress deeper before the final execution of the Task, making the desired portion of the screen bigger and easier to select within. Activate this mode by resting your gaze on the Task Button until the color changes according to the image below.

The Shortcuts Task will not perform any zooming.

Third Selection (popout menu) — For some of the tasks on the Taskbar there is a popout menu available with Additional Tasks. Activate this mode by resting your gaze on the Task Button until the popout menu is activated according to the image below.

In Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 the colors on the Taskbar will adapt to Windows settings.

By activating it with secondary selection you set it to activate a zoom before the click, meant for smaller targets.

If a Task becomes "sticky" it means that you do not have to look back at the Taskbar if you want to repeat the execution of the selected Task, only if you want to change the Task to another.

Selection Method — Gaze or Switch

There are two methods to execute the chosen Task.

● Gaze — using the eyes to both control and execute selected Task.

● Switch — using the eyes to control and using a mechanical button connected to device to execute the selected Task.

The method of choice is set from within the Windows Control Settings Dialog, see 4 Windows Control Settings, page 20.

Before executing a selection you select a Task from the Taskbar to execute. Gaze at your chosen task until it is highlighted as

“Primary” or “Secondary Selection”.

Gaze - To execute the chosen Task, rest your gaze at the desired portion of the screen (or icon on the screen) where you want to execute the Task. An automatic zoom function is enabled, ending in the selection of the icon or execution of the task.

Switch - Two different execution modes.

Single activation of the Switch - the zoom function will execute in the same way as with the Gaze method and

according to the settings made in the Windows Control Settings Dialog, see 4 Windows Control Settings, page

20.

Activate and hold the Switch - the zoom function will zoom continuously and end only upon the release / deactivation of the switch.

When using the Gaze method, you have to look back at the Taskbar to select a new Task before each task execution.

When precision is set to zero in Windows Control Settings - no zoom is performed. For more information, see 4

Windows Control Settings, page 20.

3.7.1

Sticky Tasks & Default Left Click / Tap for Switch

When using the Switch method, a feature is made use of called "sticky tasks".

14

3 Using Tobii Dynavox Windows Control

Tobii Dynavox Windows Control 2 User’s manual v.1.0 - en-US

If a Task becomes "sticky" it means that you do not have to look back at the Taskbar if you want to repeat the execution of the selected Task, only if you want to change the Task to another.

When using the Switch method, the Left Click / Tap Task is "sticky" by default. This means that Left Click / Tap is always on and will always be activated by the activation of the switch, if nothing else is selected. If another Task is selected it will be active only once (for one selection) and then Windows Control will automatically default back to Left Click / Tap for the subsequent selections.

The exception to this is the Double Click Task; when it is selected when using Switch mode it will also become sticky, meaning that it will stay selected until another Task is selected (after which it will again default back to Left Click / Tap).

This allows for excellent use cases such as quick/continual surfing of the internet by activating the Switch and thus the Left

Click / Tap Task once and then repeatedly selecting anything desired, without having to choose the Left Click /Tap Task again multiple times.

3.7.2

Activating a Task with a Keyboard button instead of a Switch

Selecting the “F12 Keyboard Button”, , on an attached keyboard will activate a Task selection. It can be used in exactly

the same way as a connected switch. For more information on Switches, see 3.7 Selection Method — Gaze or Switch, page

14.

3.8

Gaze Keyboard

By selecting the Gaze Keyboard button on the Taskbar, the Gaze Keyboard will launch as an on-screen keyboard. The Gaze

Keyboard will be positioned either at the top or at the bottom of the screen depending on where the user choose to place it.

The keyboard can be placed on the screen in two different ways with the Primary and Secondary selection of the keyboard task:

● With Primary selection:

1.

Activate the Primary Selection of the keyboard task.

2.

Select where to write and the keyboard will be launched at the opposite side.

If you want to write in the lower part of the screen, the keyboard will be placed at the top and vise versa.

With dwell usage the keyboard will be placed opposite to where you dwell immediately. If the user is using a switch, the user must first gaze where to type and then hit the switch to place the keyboard in the opposite place.

● With Secondary selection:

– The keyboard will be placed at the bottom of the screen automatically.

Together with the Gaze Keyboard, the Keyboard Taskbar will be launched. For more information, see 3.8.1 Keyboard Taskbar,

page 17.

The Gaze Keyboard consists of four keyboard pages in a rotating loop. The user can easily switch between the different keyboard pages by selecting the next page buttons located to the far left and right on all pages of the Gaze Keyboard.

The key on the keyboard where the user is gazing will be indicated by a light frame around the character/function key.

Figure 3.4 First Page to the Right

Figure 3.5 Second Page to the Right or Left

Figure 3.6 First Page to the Left

To change keyboard language and other settings for the keyboard, see 4 Windows Control Settings, page 20.

The Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Win and Alt Gr keys will become "sticky" once selected. This means that they will stay selected until the user selects a new key from the keyboard. They will stay sticky if the next selected key is another sticky key.

To write a letter with an accent:

1.

Select the accent

2.

Select the character

3.

The character will appear with the chosen accent.

3.8.1

Keyboard Taskbar

At the top of the Keyboard Taskbar there is a Track Status viewer the same way as in the Windows Control Taskbar. It allows you to verify that the eye tracker recognizes your eyes and that you are well positioned in front of the device.

The Task Buttons in the Keyboard Taskbar can be in three different modes as shown in Figure 3.7 The Modes for the Keyboard

Taskbar, page 17.

Normal (Unselected) - No Task Button for Windows Control is chosen.

Primary Selection (white) - The marked Task Button is selected and the Task will be executed after the automatic zoom when the user looks at the desired position on the screen or icon on it. If the selection method is set to Switch in the Windows Control Settings Dialog, the chosen Task Button will still remain active after executing the Task.

Secondary Selection(Blue/white) - Same as Primary Selection but with a higher precision. Primary Selection means that the zoom will progress deeper before the final execution of the Task, making the desired portion of the screen bigger and easier to select within. Activate this mode by resting your gaze on the Task Button until the color changes according to the image below.

Only available for the Left Click function.

In Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 the colors on the Keyboard Taskbar will adapt to Windows settings.

3.8.3

Word Prediction

The word prediction engine that is used in Windows Control is from SwiftKey and is commonly used in tablets and smartphones. SwiftKey uses a blend of artificial intelligence technologies that enable it to predict the next word the user intends to type. SwiftKey learns from previous text the user has written and output predictions based on currently input text and what it has learned. The Word Prediction language will change depending on the Keyboard Language setting.

Figure 3.8 Keyboard with Word Prediction Activated

When Word Prediction is in use, see 4 Windows Control Settings, page 20 for more information about activating/deactivating

Word Prediction, six (6) boxes will appear above the Keyboard. The leftmost box will display the most probable predicted word and the remaining five (5) boxes will contain one predicted word each. To select a predicted word, just select the box with the correct word in it. If you can’t find the word you are looking for, just keep on typing and hopefully the word you are looking for will appear after the next character.

If you are using Word Prediction and want to type a word containing an accent, like café, you are often better off letting Word Prediction handle the accent. Simply type “cafe” and you will get a suggestion for “café”.

While the user is typing, the last 5-10 characters will be displayed in blue on the indicated/highlighted key. For more informa-

tion, see 4 Windows Control Settings, page 20. This feature assists the user in easily spotting misspellings and reduces the
