The Eye and Pen software records the movements of the pen during periods of writing and pauses.

If owning an eyetracking device, eye and Pen can also synchronously record the eye movements.  For researchers in educational sciences, linguistics, or cognitive psychology, the ability to track with high precision the processing of visual information during writing will contribute enormously to their understanding of compositional strategies and the functioning of written language.

Investigations in the workplace and in professional writing should provide researchers with insight into the acquisition and development of expertise. Studies conducted with children should give interesting pictures of spelling processing and difficulties. Ergonomics and pedagogical applications are numerous.
