Today I am starting fresh because I am typing this blog post with my eyes. I never thought I would miss writing but I did. I guess I just wasn’t ready to give up sharing my stories. You all have given me a purpose and a reason to keep going even if I have to type with my eyes.
I can no longer use my arms and hands to type and my speech makes dictating to someone else difficult, so I had to find another way. This is how the Tobii Eye Gaze machine works. First you calibrate the machine with your eyes, then you pull up the keyboard and stare at a letter until it shows up on the screen. I’m not very graceful at it yet and still make a lot of mistakes but I’m sure it will get easier with some practice.
Thank you for inspiring me to keep going.
