Customise your experience

Easy and Standard mode

Each activity can be adjusted to suit you. Easy mode allows you to explore the activity at your own pace, without having to worry about failing by losing lives or running out of time. Standard mode has a more competitive edge, where lives or time may be limited and where difficulty increases.   

Appearance options 

For anyone with a visual impairment, or who requires a simplified visual experience with fewer distractions, Look Lab can be displayed in minimal mode which increases contrast and removes distractions such as graphic backgrounds and score.

Access options

  1. Guided: a communication partner guides you through the activity selection process.
  2. Choice Making: the same as Guided mode, but users can also dwell to select and exit activities.
  3. Independent: complete access with no restrictions.

Use with Grid AAC software 

For anyone using Grid AAC software, you can quickly switch between Look Lab and your communication grid set.

A seamless way to go from enjoying activities in Look Lab, to having a chat with someone, checking that you are in a good position, or re-calibrating your eye tracker.
