How AVA Works
Empowering Your Every Day
Meet Ava, software designed to improve your daily life, because they believe that a disability should not define one’s abilities.
What is Ava?
Ava is hands-free computer access software in virtual reality (VR). Ava runs on the Oculus Go, an affordable and untethered VR headset. With Ava you get:
- Private computer access that includes a web browser, text editor, and text messaging
- Intuitive software designed from the ground up to be controlled entirely through head movement
- Voice dictation available to allow faster typing
- Individualize the software on the fly with settings such as dwell time, keyboard selection, cursor sensitivity, virtual environment, and more
- Mini-games specifically designed for head control
- Different virtual environments in which to work and relax
- New exciting features released via software updates
What is needed?
In order to use Ava, you’ll need to be able to bend your head forward and backwards, as well as rotate to the left and right. For those with limited range of motion, Ava allows you to customize the cursor sensitivity to accommodate reduced head movement.
A smartphone will allow you to get started with the Oculus Go, download device updates, and allow you to share your screeen with your friends and caregiver.
You might want a caregiver or friend to help you put on and take off the Oculus Go headset. While using Ava, one click notifies a caregiver/friend anytime you’d like to take a break. Notifications are sent via text or email, your choice.
Eyeflite Ava will ship with these features:
- YouTube viewer
- Web browser (in beta)
- Text messaging (device has it’s own phone number)
- 2 mini-games
- Note taking app
