Apple’s iPad Gets Assistive Technology Boost

Making the Apple iPad Accessible

Original Article by Michelle Diament  | DisabilityScoop

Known as the Tobii Dynavox Pilot, the certified Apple accessory attaches to a standard iPad to seamlessly integrate eye-tracking capabilities into all of the typical features of the tablet. In addition, TD Pilot includes TD Talk, an eye-controlled app to generate speech, as well as TD Snap, which offers symbols for users to select in order to communicate.

TD Pilot offers powerful speakers, an extended battery, an “ultra-rugged design” and can be mounted to a wheelchair, Tobii Dynavox said. The eye-gaze technology works even in bright light outside and there is a partner window on the backside of the device so that words written out using eye gaze can be seen by others a user is communicating with.
