Both the Megabee manual eyegaze communicator and the Zingui have now been listed in the Assistive Devices Program Catalogue in the province of Ontario. This means that both of these technologies can be purchased using ADP funding.
Codes are below.
The MegaBee is a simple-to-use assisted assisted writing tablet used in face to face communication for literate eye-gaze users.
The MegaBee delivers, immediate, efficient supported communication for a literate user with minimal training for either the communicator or assistant.
Clinicians have really embraced the MegaBee, recognizing that it fills a need that isn’t addressed by any other device. This is a great stepping stone to a full computer eyegaze system and an easy light tech back up for an existing high tech eyegaze system for any literate user.

The Zingui is a dynamic display AAC device with a tablet form factor. But the Zingui has all the robust communication power (battery life, programming flexibility on computer or off, durability, bilingual) that you expect from Jabbla, the folks who build the other portable multilingual marvel, the Tellus Smart.
See all the details on a previous post we did about the Zingui. https://bridgesontario.wordpress.com/2010/06/08/zingui-%E2%80%93-big-screen-light-weight-dynamic-communication/
The Zingui configuration for ADP includes extended warranties, dual language, carrying case, PCS symbols and other optional accessories.
