The Computer Science Department and the Physiology
Department at the George Washington University participated in a
multidisciplinary Research and Development task to Design and Test an Eye-Gazed
based Reading Remediation System for Dyslexic patients and people injured
with neurological trauma such as head injury.
The Project was sponsored by NASA Jet Propulsion
Laboratory (NASA/JPL) and the
primary paper was
published in ACM UIST2000.
Final Project Report was written on April 2003 by Professor
John Sibert, Professor
Robert Lavine and
The Primary Hypothesis was:
assistance rendered by the Eye-Gazed auditory prompting system is an effective
remediation for Dyslexia and Alexia."
A dyslexic patient reads a text on the computer screen and
the eye tracking system monitors the readers gaze point. If the reader cannot
read a word, the system will highlight and pronounce the difficult word.
