About this app

EVA FACIAL MOUSE is an application developed and promoted by CREA with the support of Fundación Vodafone España.

EVA FACIAL MOUSE is a free and open source application that allows the access to functions of a mobile device by means of tracking the user face captured through the frontal camera. Based on the movement of the face, the app allows the user to control a pointer on the screen (i.e., like a mouse),which provides direct access to most elements of the user interface.

People with amputations, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or other disabilities may be beneficiaries of this app.

Due to restrictions of the Android platform, there are currently some LIMITATIONS:
• Most standard keyboards do not work with EVA, so a basic keyboard is provided. Such a keyboard needs to be manually activated after the installation.
• Does not work with most games.
• Browsers do not handle properly some actions (we recommend using Google Chrome).
• Applications such as Maps, Earth and Gallery work with restrictions.
• It cannot be used simultaneously with other applications that make use of the camera.
• For obvious reasons, it has not been tested with all devices available on the market. If you find any issues with your device, please, let us know.

In this link, you can find a list of devices (tablet and mobile) that have been evaluated according to their compatibility with the EVA Facial Mouse application: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gxuIKbw92d9USPT_SvM0iCdWjtnVcx7owJAgwM6Za6w/edit#gid=0


EVA has been developed in collaboration with experts and users from organizations of ASPACE Confederation (Spain). In particular, ASPACE Asturias, ASPACE Barcelona, ASPACE Gipuzkoa, ASPACE Granada, APPC Tarragona and AVAPACE. Furthermore, it has been tested by CEAPAT, CRE (León) and ASPAYM Castilla y León.

This app uses Accessibility services.

1) Difficulty with vertical control, especially up. 2) When I look away, the cursor still moves. . . Why? 3) How to best calibrate the cursor/mouse? Should I try to calibrate with the cursor in the middle of the screen? The consistency is challenging Please understand the importance of my ability to use this technology. NOT only would this give me the opportunity to access "the world" from my bed, after my physical assistant has left for the day. If we can work out the kinks in this system so it is efficient for me, I would purchase the full software program

What a crazy app, basically rubbish. When setting up it suggests you adjust the vertical and horizontal sensitivity. Then it gives you no way to do it. On my Samsung S9+, the default sensitivity is far too low. This means regardless of head movement the cursor won't work correctly. This is a stupid error in the programming. The whole app looks dodgy anyway. Uninstalling. Not Reccomended!!

I feel like this app should have an option to use your hand instead of your face. Using your face is bothersome since you have to look at the screen and move your face at the same time causing some disorientation. Using your hands could be a cool idea for accessibility, make it easier to control clicking with a pinch, and it would be fun to control your phone by not touching it, for if you have wet hands or just because you want to feel like a Jedi using the force.
