An Ohio school for children with special needs is helping students who are unable to speak communicate through computers that utilize eye tracking to allow users to make visual selections on a computer screen. The specialized Tobii computers generate speech through the user's selection of a word or phrase with their eyes. "We are still learning how we can best use the equipment with our students," a speech-language pathologist at the school said. "It is exciting to be able to open up the possibility of enabling our students to communicate."
