Debuting on the EyeOn will be OnBright, a first-of-its-kind suite of software applications purpose-built for the AAC community.
MESA, AZ – May 17, 2021 – EyeTech Digital Systems announces release of its software ecosystem for the EyeOn family of eye-tracking tablets, an open platform engineered from the ground up to provide the first truly seamless eye-tracking technology experience. Software-agnostic EyeOn devices support EyeTech’s applications as well as third-party applications, arming engineers and end users with the highest reliability and lowest integration costs in the eye-tracking industry. The release introduces EyeTech’s OnBright suite of proprietary software applications, purpose-built for augmentative and alternative communication.
EyeTech’s EyeOn tablet combined with its OnBright AAC software is designed to give a voice to non-verbal individuals with conditions such as ALS, autism, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Rett syndrome, and stroke and traumatic brain injuries. OnBright software applications empower users to communicate, control their environment, work, learn, and improve their overall quality of life – all hands-free, simply using the power of their eyes.
OnBright eye-tracking enabled software applications include:
- BrightTalk: a text-based communication app with sophisticated sentence prediction and phrase banks that support fast and intuitive communication for any literacy level
- BrightControl: an environmental control app to remotely activate devices like smart TVs, lights and audio systems, with easy access to most-used buttons and automated device set-up tools
- BrightWeb: an internet browsing app with smart dwell link isolating features and pop-up control panels that minimize when not in use
- BrightSymbol: a symbol-based communication app, designed with speech language pathologists, that allows users to leverage pictures to support communication
- EyeOn Access: seamless and intuitive keyboard and enhanced computer mouse control across your entire system using only your eyes
OnBright is the first software suite to incorporate “eye gaze first” design, with robust and adaptive precision eye-tracking considered at every phase of development. EyeOn’s on-board data processing chip enables user-driven calibration, which helps the device learn how to better serve each user by using artificial intelligence to modify and adjust the system to better fit their needs. EyeOn users enjoy full control and customization of OnBright software, with a consistent, seamless navigation experience. A cloud-based ecosystem enables remote updates and support, mitigating device loss time. Every EyeOn with OnBright user has access to Success Coaches for the entire lifetime of usage.
“Eye-tracking is uniquely capable of enriching lives and at EyeTech we are committed to delivering a higher quality of life to the AAC community,” said EyeTech Founder and Chief Science Officer Robert Chappell. “Following the debut of our OnBright suite of software applications, EyeTech users can expect a consistent flow of exciting new software and software updates designed to bring further innovation to AAC and medical fields.”
