Gaze information has the potential to bring great benefits to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), particularly when combined with speech. Gaze can provide information about user intention, as a secondary modality, or it can be used as the main modality by impaired users. In this paper we describe a multimodal HCI system prototype which supports speech, gaze and the combination of both. The system has been developed for Active Assisted Living scenarios. The examples of use include checking the news module from the PaeLife Personal Assistant by means of gaze, speech or both, simultaneously.
