Product Description: 

OptiKey is a free and open source assistive on-screen keyboard that runs on Windows. It is designed to be used with a low-cost eye-tracking device to bring keyboard control, mouse control, and speech to people with motor and speech limitations, such as people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) / Motor Neuron Disease (MND).

Main Features: 

  • Allows selections to be made using dwell selection, as well as physical buttons and assistive devices and switches.
  • It can be used with a mouse or webcam if an eye tracker is not available.
  • It can be used as an alternative to a physical keyboard, allowing users to type into any application.
  • It can automatically insert spaces between words and capitalize letters to increase the typing rate.
  • Users can type whole words and phrases in a single selection by "swiping" or using "auto-complete."
  • Replaces the mouse, enabling users to click, scroll, and drag anywhere on the screen.
  • Select the 'Speak' key and OptiKey will convert what the user has typed into speech.
