ECTkeyboard is a program included in a set of assistive applications developed by the EyeComTec Company (www.eyecomtec.com). ECTkeyboard is a virtual keyboard (symbol matrix) where the user can select letters, numbers or even commands by pressing a button or a pedal. This application can also be used in conjunction with eye-tracking devices, allowing users to select a symbol from a matrix by changing their sight direction.

The main idea of ECTkeyboard is to provide paralyzed patients and people with significant motor activity problems with a solution and a possibility to communicate.

The application is totally portable and doesn't require installation, allowing users to launch it from any external storage device. An unlimited amount of user profiles, as well as the possibility to switch them 'on the fly' allows the use of ECTkeyboard in various medical and rehabilitation centers. This application is incredibly convenient to use. Thus, a patient can freely use it in just a couple of minutes after the very first launch.

Users can change the interface layout of the program in order to create a convenient atmosphere. The user can change the number of rows and columns in the matrix of symbols, change the cell order, as well as change colors and various fonts of all the elements of the application. It's possible to select the size of the font and set a high contrast color scheme, which makes this application comfortable and easy for visually impaired patients. Users can also enable sound confirmation of all highlighted letters or symbols.

Another great and unique feature of ECTkeyboard is the variable speed of matrix symbol iteration. During the first period, when the user is just starting to get used to the application, a low speed of iteration allows them to understand the interface and remember all letter and symbol positions. A high speed can be useful for those who already know the application and can use it for fast text typing.

Text input by pressing single button. ECTkeyboard is a program that allows individuals with significantly reduced muscular activity (ex paralysis sufferers, quadriplegic patients) to type messages and even lengthy texts letter-by-letter via pressing only one physical button.
