Patients who suffer from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or stroke cannot talk and express their everyday basic needs and requests. They can communicate using eye trackers since they can still use their eyes and sometimes move their heads. This study suggests new methods for improvements in both speed and ease of use for eye tracker softwares. The first one is letter prediction to improve the speed, and second one is a new design that obviates the need of blinking with eye trackers, thus providing more comfortable and longer sessions of writing.
