Gaze Assisted Ergonomics : Means of expediting computer usage for the physically impaired

University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

Abstract: The degree project explores the interaction between computers and users who, due to physical impairments are unable to use computer mice and/or keyboards. The users are given alternative means of input,namely eye tracking and speech recognition. The interactions are studied using experiments that are based on the Wizard of Oz-method.The project also includes development of a framework used during the experiments and interfaces that are based on the results of the experiments. It is shown that eye tracking and speech recognition has the potential to allow a user full and efficient usage of a computer, without the need for a computer mouse or keyboard.
