“My patient is becoming more independent every day with the ViVo Mouse! She’s accessing facebook, youtube, music sites, candy crush, yahoo, and so many more things on her own. She was on her computer for six hours today without needing any assistance from staff. It’s amazing!” – Colleen T., M.A, CCC-SLP     8/11/2015

Vivo_icon2-copy1-150x150Elegant, Advanced, Easy   The Vortant Video and Voice Mouse (ViVo) is an advanced software head tracker that works with a standard webcam to automatically find your face, providing complete hands-free control of your PC. With your voice or by moving your head you have full control of the mouse, single click, double click, right click – even drag and drop. High quality video processing gives accurate pointer control. The ViVo Standard and Professional models combine the best of speech recognition and head tracking by offering powerful & customizable integration with leading speech recognition programs.

The ViVo Mouse is beneficial for a wide range of computer users with physical disabilities needing complete hands-free control of their computer. Common situations might include: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, ALS, MS, spinal cord injuries, Cerebral Palsy, and stroke. The ViVo is also beneficial in other environments requiring complete hands-free control: clean environments, non-contact environments, and computing at a distance.

The ViVo Mouse now comes in 3 models, offering solutions for a wide range of needs. Click any title below for more about each model:

ViVo Professional Unmatched Computer Control & Versatility
Unrivaled head tracking and voice recognition technology, offering exemplary hands-free control of your computer. From powerful built-in voice recognition commands to intelligent task adaptation and advanced Dwell time control options, the ViVo Professional offers impressive capabilities and customizability. The ViVo Professional seamlessly coordinates with many speech recognition programs, including Dragon Professional.

Vivo Standard Complete Control at a Leading Price Point
All the advanced capabilities and features of the Professional model but does not integrate with Dragon Professional. Advanced dwell clicking, Intelligent task adaptation, powerful built-in speech controls and unique integration with leading speech recognition programs such as Dragon Premium, and Microsoft Speech…and much much more.

Vivo Lite Superior Head Tracking – Plain & Simple
Accurate hands-free mouse control, dwell clicking, and context sensitive mouse control. Works alongside speech recognition programs.

Easy to Use The ViVo Mouse uses standard equipment so it’s affordable, highly-configurable and flexible. It uses a standard webcam with no complicated headsets or other attachments needed. Speak or move your head to precisely control the mouse, the pointer motion automatically slows to pin-point small items. Sophisticated software makes it easy to click on tiny objects and complex menus and perform formerly difficult tasks. It is very easy to get the ViVo – just load the software and you are up and running.

Simple to Configure First time calibration takes all of 10 seconds. For later fine tuning, the convenient, unobtrusive interface for controlling head tracking behavior is easily accessed with the head tracker itself. You have precise control over everything from calibration, mouse speed, dwell time and how the pointer behaves at the edges of the screen to the speed, frame rate and all the other subtle settings for your web cam.

Opening the World The ViVo Standard and Professional powerfully integrate with popular speech recognition software, allowing for additional command options . Or, use the build-in speech recognition capabilities. The ViVo Mouse® lets you surf the Internet, email, word process, play games and work with many otherwise complex tasks. Users don’t need to use a mouse, but can still control the computer completely. Read the news, make travel reservations or research your next career. And when you need a break, it makes playing games more fun, as the ViVo turns the head into a ‘joystick controller’ for controlling the mouse. Moving the head to the left moves the mouse to left, and so on.

Intelligent The ViVo Mouse automatically adjusts to the task you are doing through intelligent task adaptation, and adjusts its operations based on where you are pointing. The ViVo also adjusts for the use of the onscreen keyboard and other accessibility software. To type, you can move the cursor with your voice just as if your hands were on the keyboard and handily perform editing operations such as cut, copy, paste and delete.

Flexible When working on a document or composing email, you can use head movements or voice input. If you prefer, you can also type using other accessibility tools, such as the Microsoft On-Screen Keyboard (although typing with speech is often much faster!). Additionally, the ViVo also operates as an additional mouse input device – so it never stops other mice or controllers being used on the computer. Anytime you want, you can use a ViVo generated mouse click or a simple voice command to quickly enable and disable the head tracker to suit your work flow.

The ViVo Mouse® is a powerful way to control your computer with your head and voice. Regardless of which model you use, you need a webcam to use the ViVo Mouse. Although the ViVo Mouse will work with pretty much any webcam, the quality of the webcam may affect how well the ViVo functions. The ViVo is also machine-dependent. Some machines, especially older ones, will not run the software. For system requirements, see the below list or visit the ViVo overview

• Go for a frame rate of 30 fps (or as close as possible).
• Choose a webcam capable of resolutions of 320 x 240 and above
• Built-in webcams on laptops are often poor quality. Try an external USB webcam instead, such as the Logitech C525 or newer.
• Use a reasonably good webcam. We recommend the Logitech C525 or later for optimal performance.
• Make sure you have the latest drivers for your webcam.
• The power of your computer is important. You should have at least a dual-core processor, 2.4 GHz or greater.

Extensive webcam setup instructions and troubleshooting are available in our ViVo Support pages.
