I wa ale in my last visit to Mexico to install and test you application with my Mother, I was using the Eye Tracker from the Eyetribe and I must I say I was totally amazed.
For the very first time after several months my mother was able to control something, I did in fact used a 32 inches screen and then moved to a laptop, but I guess the best option will be to use the bigger screen because my mother cannot see inn the short distance without the use of glasses, which are not so good when using the eyetribre.
I do have some comments to improve you aplication, and Im glad to see that some of them were already improved in the last days, but there are some others that I would like to share with you, most probably some other people have already shared this with you as well.
1.- Function to speak all the text already written (inside the Keyboad Function)
2.- Abilty to play videos other than MP4, for example the ones filmed with an Iphone, they are not recognized at the moment.
3.- Ability to change the words in the dictionary, I tried to go to the original file and do some changes to some words, like when typing a T, the system already says TONELADA, which at the end does not mean to much when trying to write something in spanish, many words starts with T and the system selects aery complex one since the very beginning.
4.- When using the predifined Grid of 6 and 28, there is no return option, you just get stuck into that option, you need assisstance from the mouse to go back.
5.- I tried to configurate my email, gmail, but I was not able to do it, maybe I do not have enough information to do it.
There are other some small details, but I guess these are the most important ones.
Thank you Pierre, my mother, family and myself really appreciatte your efforts by creating this wonderful application.
Thanks Henrique for your feedback !

3. change words in the dictionary: yes, we will include the possibility to enter a specific dictionary
4. grids 2 and 6 cells : yes, we will try to find a way to exit the grids more easily
5. emails : we will test gmail (it works with other pop providers)
Thanks again for your feedback, it will help to constantly improve this solution.
