New eye-tracking typing software developed by Cavendish Laboratory.
A hands-free writing programme has been developed by researchers at the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University.
The new software provides a virtual keyboard for computer users that requires an eye-scanning camera to work on their PC. Instead of the traditional QWERTY keyboard, the programme provides a list of letters on the right hand side of the screen which the user drags across to the left by moving their eyes. Once a letter has been selected, the computer then suggests possible words that can be dragged across in the same way as individual letters can.
According to the researchers, the software can provide a typing speed of about 25 words per minute.
