Initial PC solutions will provide smart text-to-speech (TTS) functions with user pre-defined phrases, including medical and lifestyle instructions that can be relayed to carer’s, medical professionals or other people. Where practicable, the use of predictive text to reduce the effort required to input words and phrases will be employed such as the SwiftKey product www.swiftkey.net
 
A primary consideration is the ability for the user to navigate and control technology devices prior to making use of any smart applications. The key aspects of this functionality are navigation, selection and input. BCI, head/face/eye tracking, voice recognition systems, smart switches and specialised controllers are able to address this functionality.

Emotiv There are many, new, emerging and innovative technologies coming to market almost on a weekly basis.

Where possible, the thrust and focus of our developments will make use of Brain-Computer-Interface (BCI) technologies such as the EPOC headset from www.emotiv.com  to minimise the need for physical movement and interaction. Emotiv have a number of 3rd party applications available to make use of their EPOC headset.

A number of research projects around the world are exploring the use of “imagined speech” whereby making use of BCI technologies, people who speak in their mind will have those words detected and transferred to text on a PC or even control the PC activities, similar to how Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking is used on a PC using actual audible voice commands.

Where people may have cognitive problems and unable to make use of BCI devices; smart headsets such as Golden-I, may prove to offer an alternative solution. Other technologies such as face-tracking systems, muscle or sensitive touch switches are also important components of potential solutions; the nature of a person’s disability and their physical and mental capability, will determine what technologies are most suitable to meet their needs. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution!
