With many choices available, one company is leading the way to bring you the best solutions. Clinicians, therapists, and parents are invited to attend this overview presentation to learn about computer and AAC access solutions from Madentec Limited. You'll see familiar and new head pointing options, as well as what's new in the world of computer access software and hardware solutions. This presentation will highlight the Tracker head tracking devices.

We'll show you how Tracker works with several of the most popular AAC devices on the market. And we'll give an overview of how to access, hands-free, both computers and AAC devices.
