ENABLER FOR ACCESS TO COMPUTER-BASED VOCATIONAL TASKS WITH LANGUAGE AND SPEECH - PROJECT

Objective

Motor disabilities often affect people's speech as well as their ability to use their hands and legs, effectively preventing them from remaining in work. The ENABL project will help people with a motor disability to gain access by voice, via speech recognition, to powerful vocational software for custom-driven product design and configuration. ENABL will seek to implement a user interface that is controllable by speech, including the dysarthric speech of persons with motor disabilities. The software in question enhances user productivity tenfold in tasks involving the generation and manipulation of graphical objects, such as sketches or solid models, and of text, such as catalogues and reports. Motor disabilities will therefore no longer prevent people from working at all levels in a highly competitive and technically complex work environment.
