What is Tecla?

Tecla is a portable, hands-free device that allows people with physical mobility limitations to navigate a smartphone with ease, without touching the screen.

With Tecla, you send commands using an assistive switch such as a head array, button or sip-and-puff controller. Tecla then relays the commands to the smartphone via Bluetooth.
