By default, Grid is accessible via touch if your device has a touch screen and by mouse.

Each access method has a wide variety of settings and options available that can be optimised to suit your needs

Connect switches via 3.5mm switch ports, USB ports, or even wirelessly. Grid can be configured to scan your grid sets in many ways, and you can connect multiple switches.

Eye gaze

Grid supports a number of popular eye tracking devices. Select your camera and adjust the settings to meet your needs.

Pointer access

Pointer access covers a wide range of devices, from track balls to head-trackers, all of which control a mouse pointer on the screen. Use Grid’s settings to adjust how you interact and click on the screen.

Tip: Grid can also be controlled with your voice if you have speech. Configure and say “Hey, Grid 3!” to start.
