Smile DynaVox or Tobii

I am soon to lose my voice. I was on set in left hand to years ago. Can barely use my right hand now. Can stand for transfers. Will be evaluated in early May for eye gaze and voice technology. Before the appointment I have to choose which one I want. Would value input here from people who have already made this decision. Thanks in advance!

Default Re: DynaVox or Tobii

I would check again to make sure you can't try both first before choosing.
If you wear glasses, I have found the Dynavox to be easier to get set up on because you get to see the actual camera picture and see where any reflections are interfering. The Dynavox is also very customizable.
But I do like the interface and software of the Tobii better. But I've just had difficulty in getting accurate enough tracking with it.
A big factor could be would you get better support from your SLP on one versus the other because they know it better.
