Motion-tracking and speech recognition for hands-free mouse-pointer Manipulation
Loewenich, Frank & Maire, Frederic D. (2008) Motion-tracking and speech recognition for hands-free mouse-pointer Manipulation. In Mihelic, France & Zibert, Janez (Eds.) Speech Recognition. IN-TECH, pp. 427-434.
The design of traditional interfaces relies on the use of mouse and keyboard. For people with certain disabilities, however, using these devices presents a real problem. In this chapter we describe a graphical user interface navigation utility, similar in functionality to the traditional mouse pointing device. Movement of the pointer is achieved by tracking the motion of the head, while button-actions can be initiated by issuing a voice command. Foremost in our mind was the goal to make our system easy to use and affordable, and provide users with disabilities with a tool that promotes their independence and social interaction.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
