Many people are unable to operate a standard computer mouse or keyboard because of disabilities of their hands or arms. One possible alternative for these persons is multimodal system, which allows controlling a computer without using standard mouse and keyboard, for example: (1) Using head movements to control the cursor across the computer screen; (2) using the speech for giving the control commands.
The objective of this project is to introduce us to speech processing techniques through a useful application which is voice control of computer mouse for arm disabled people. we will have to design a system for computer mouse control through the recognition of simple speech commands from human voice by using a microphone. The system will allow arm injured and/or disabled people to use their computer mouse through various voice commands for various movement directions and specific tasks like “click” and “double-click”. and we are planning to finish this project by the new year.
