How to change between two access methods in Grid 3

It’s possible for Grid 3 users to change between access methods independently in Grid 3.

  • Rename the first grid set ‘Eye Gaze version’
  • Rename the second grid set ‘Switch version’

Set up the Eye Gaze Version by going to Edit > Grid > Grid Commands > Add Command

  • Search for the Rest eye gaze Command and press OK, select Rest off
  • Search for the Rest switches Command and press OK, select Rest on
  • Now press OK

  • You will then need to ensure all of the Rest cells in the grid set are changed to indicate the access method it works with:

  • Update the cell label to indicate where it navigates to.
