ECTtracker

ECTtracker is an eye-tracking AAC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) program, allowing the real-time analysis of the user’s eye (open or closed). This application is a part of the complex of assistive technology software created by EyeComTec (LAZgroup SA). ECTtracker implements low cost computer mediated communication for people suffering from various forms of paralysis or significantly impaired mobility.

The program is used in conjunction with applications for capturing video from webcams or other devices connected to your computer (ex: ECTcamera, Skype). The program assigns different key codes to different states of the user’s eye, which can later be transmitted to any application (ex: ECTmorse, ECTkeyboard). Thus, by opening and closing one or both eyes, the user can control programs and type texts.

Using a special recognition structure ECTtracker compares the image received in real-time from the camera with pre-stored user samples. Samples are small static images with accurate focus on the area of the user’s eyes: on some samples the user’s eyes are open, on other – one or both eyes are closed. The program selects the samples with the highest match through comparing the image samples obtained with the camera.

ECTtracker is fully customizable. The program contains more than 45 settings with which you can change the appearance and functionality. The user has a full control over the video processing speed (frames per second). Some settings can significantly reduce the requirements for computer resources, so the program runs stably even on low-end computers.

ECTtracker doesn’t require installation or modifying the registry of the operating system and works with portable devices. Supports simultaneous launch of multiple copies of the program; Possibility to save all table samples and user settings in separate files.

ECTlistener

ECTistener software, created and developed by EyeComTec (www.eyecomtec.com) is intended to analyze sound signals from any microphone. Depending on the length and volume of the signal, ECTlistener emulates key strokes and sends control codes to the receiving software.
The program was created for disabled people (paralyzed or those with extremely reduced mobility) and works in conjunction with other programs (e.g. ECTkeyboard symbol matrix). By using a personal computer with a microphone and both ECTlistener and ECTkeyboard, patients can type text letter-by-letter by using individualized vocal prompts such as moans, loud breathing, sniffing and many other sounds. This allows them to communicate with their relatives, friends, service or medical staff.
Nowadays, there are many technical solutions that allow users to generate key strokes with different sounds, or inhalation or exhalation of air. However, all these solutions require special equipment and are not available for everyone at a reasonable price. Simultaneously, EyeComTec are developing ECTlistener as an easy, comfortable to use and affordable alternative for those solutions.
To start the program the user needs only a personal computer equipped with a microphone which are freely available in any electronic or computer shop. ECTlistener can even work on very old personal computers with low productivity, due to the program’s low system requirements. Furthermore, fast export or import of all settings, the small size of the program and the ability to work without any installation, allows the user to execute ECTlistener from any removable device, for example, flash card, external hard drive etc.
The program is really customizable and has a user-friendly interface. Initial settings take only few minutes to operate and program is ready to work! ECTlistener is free for any private use, contains no advertising and supports many languages.
