We are a global team that works to help people with communication and mobility challenges live richer, more meaningful lives.
Our technology benefits those who use it and the people around them – parents, siblings, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and clinicians as well as others they encounter in everyday life. We empower people with complex communication and mobility needs to decide what to say and do on their own terms.
We ensure that our technology and solutions for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) are easy to use and can withstand daily stresses. Whether you need an assistive technology device, a communication app, eye gaze control of your computer, low tech materials or specialized training solutions, we strive to develop top quality, effective products.
It began with two assistive technology pioneers: Sweden-based Tobii Technology and U.S.-based DynaVox. In 2014, the companies merged to give a voice to people with disabilities worldwide.

Tobii Technology’s May 2014 acquisition of DynaVox merged two companies dedicated to raising the quality of life for people with communication and mobility challenges. While Tobii had become the leading provider of eye tracking solutions for communication and computer access for individuals with ALS, Rett syndrome, spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy, DynaVox was the premier source for AAC solutions for speech, language and learning challenges related to autism, aphasia, cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders.
The union of the two companies gave the new entity an even stronger geographic presence in existing and emerging markets around the globe.
Today Tobii Dynavox has a presence in over 60 countries via a network of direct and partner sales, with offices in Sweden, the US, Norway, Germany, France, the UK, China, and Japan. Through its nearly 500 employees and a global network of partners, the company reaches thousands of people, empowering them to more fully engage in life via technology.
Tobii Dynavox seeks to acquire companies who share its vision of a world where all people can communicate, and its commitment to empowering people with disabilities to do what they once did, or never thought possible. These include:
