Abstract

The availability of hardware devices, applications and external connectivity in our computers and smartphones opens a wide range of opportunities for developing intelligent systems. People with some kind of motor disability can take advantage of such systems with minimal cost, as there are diverse hardware components already available in standard consumer products. Research reported in this document presents multi-sensorial solutions based on equipment and features already existent, with minimal adaptation can help people with disabilities to find proficiency in using computational tools. The aim of the presented work is to use camera for eye-tracking and speech recognition along with mouse and keyboard. In this case study such approach is used with AutoCAD software that, typically, is not suitable to people with physical disabilities, especially if those affect the upper limbs or the speech. The proposed intelligent system aims at providing means for those persons to be able to draft, create and embrace a new and inclusive job opportunity.
