Position the device between 40cm and 75cm from your eyes, using either the built-in stand or mounted on a stand that suits you. The best position may vary depending on the camera you are using. (See the section Mounting your Grid Pad section of this manual for more information on mounting options). 52 Eye gaze cameras have a optimal distance. Ideally the camera should be placed so it is between 50cm and 70cm from your eyes. Beyond this, extra calibration maybe required. You can use the Grid 3 eye gaze monitor window to help you find the right distance and angle. This is found in Settings – Access – Eye Gaze – Calibration. Some cameras have a live view option which will give you a video feed from the camera. 53 Calibration Calibrating the eye gaze camera helps it focus on how your eyes move around the screen. During a calibration you will be asked to follow targets around the screen, and the camera will score how accurate you are in holding your gaze in each location. In Grid 3 open Settings – Access and select Eye gaze. Use the drop-down menu to select the camera you are using. Selecting Calibration will bring up the Calibration options. Some cameras have a live view option which will give you a video feed from the camera. Using the Calibration options, you can select what the target will look like, the colour of the background, the size of the targets and the number of points to calibrate. You can also choose between continuous or a stepped calibration that enables you to tap the screen to progress between points. Tap the Calibrate button to begin. There is a cross in the top right corner to cancel the calibration. Once complete you will be given your calibration results. 54 Calibrations are stored in the camera, so you do not need to calibrate every time you use the device. Calibration is recommended if there is a change in environment or positioning. Improving your calibration Once you have completed your first calibration, you can use the Improve calibration option to focus on any problem areas. This is a good opportunity to check the position of the device, and your surroundings for any potential interference such as reflections or strong daylight. Calibrating from a grid set You can start a calibration directly from a grid set with the Calibration command. Many grid sets have this option already in the settings grids. You can also use the Improve calibration command to focus on any difficult areas. 55 Configuring your eye gaze options In Grid 3 you can customise how you want your eye gaze access to behave. There are camera specific options listed under the Camera heading. This can include smoothing, which can even out the camera’s response and make moving around the screen easier in some cases. Certain cameras support tracking one or both eyes. This can be useful if tracking both eyes causes issues. Under the Activate heading you can decide how you want to select cells. You can choose from Dwell to click, Blink to click or Press switch to click. Dwell to Click Dwell to click activates a cell after you have rested your gaze on it for a set time. You can choose how the speed of the dwell and how you want it to appear. You can also filter out repeat activations. Blink to click With blink to click selected you can highlight cells with your gaze and select them with a blink of a set duration. Minimum and maximum blink times can be set to filter out regular blinks. 56 Press switch to click With press switch to click selected you can attach an additional switch to your Grid Pad to activate a cell that has been highlighted with your gaze. You will need to have set up your switch connection under Settings – Access - Switch. Highlighting You can select the options around the highlighting of cells with eye gaze. You can also choose to show a dot that represents how your gaze appear on the screen. Computer control Under the Computer control heading you can specify how you would like to interact with Windows. Zoom to click Zoom to click enables you to focus in on a part of the screen with a slow zoom, so you can pinpoint exactly where you want to interact with the screen. You can adjust the speed and level of magnification. Dwell to click Dwell to click lets you move the mouse around the screen with your gaze. When still, the dwell timer will appear. 57 Move mouse pointer Move mouse pointer simply enables you to guide the mouse cursor around the screen without clicks. Press switch to click With Press switch to click you use the eye gaze camera to move the pointer around the screen and press your switch to make a selection. You will need to have connected a switch to your grid pad and configured it in Settings – Access – Switch. Blink to click Blink to click uses the eye gaze camera to move the pointer around the screen and blinks to make your selections. You can adjust the minimum and maximum blink times to prevent accidental activations. Use eye gaze system’s mouse control Some eye gaze cameras have their own software with Computer control options. Use these settings to use their software instead of Grid 3 when in Computer control mode. 58 In this section 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 5.5 5.6 59 Introduction to Environment control Transmitters Servus enviroment control grid sets Infrared controls Setting up and radio device Connecting a smart phone to your Grid Pad 5 Environment control 60 5.1 Introduction to environment control Your Grid Pad can control a range of devices to give you more independence.
