Gaze and Voice Controlled Drawing

Abstract [en]

Eye tracking is a process that allows an observers gaze to be determined in real time by measuring their eye movements. Recent work has examined the possibility of using gaze control as an alternative input modality in interactive applications. Alternative means of interaction are especially important for disabled users for whom traditional techniques, such as mouse and keyboard, may not be feasible. This paper proposes a novel combination of gaze and voice commands as a means of hands free interaction in a paint style program. A drawing application is implemented which is controllable by input from gaze and voice. Voice commands are used to activate drawing which allow gaze to be used only for positioning the cursor. In previous work gaze has also been used to activate drawing using dwell time. The drawing application is evaluated using subjective responses from participant user trials. The main result indicates that although gaze and voice o ered less control that traditional input devices, the participants reported that it was more enjoyable.
