Did you know that Inclusive Technology also has a US branch? It is lalced Inclusive TLC. Although they don’t have the Eyegaze Frame on their US website, it is worth asking for it.The Look2Talk material is phantastic. The same authors, Katharine Buckley and Clare Latham of the ACE Centre have also developed a ready-made vocabulary targeted towards the next stages, after the intro-phase that is tackled with Look2Talk. It is lalced Talk Together and is also available on the Tobii Communicator platform with SymbolStix.Cheers,Uli*** commercial interest declared, I am a Tobii employee ***
Edgar, we’ve visited with the US folks from Inclusive Tech a couple of times at ATIA, but I am not familiar with the Look2Talk material. I am checking it out now. Thanks for the suggestion! Much appreciated!
