    computer acces

    Hi there

    Which are the alternatives at SmartNAV from NaturalPoint Inc?

    For a quad which is not English native and computer access is difficult using Dragon Natural Speaking(or other speech recognition systems) what are the alternatives?

    many thx

    HMMMMMMMMM...... Just had a huge brain idea... Has anybody ever tried a touch screen? They aren't cheap though.. 500 to 1000 bucks

    You could use a on-screen keyboard/mouse and just touch the keys on the screen, and links/objects . My ideal thought would be to have 2 screens, normal monitor and touch. The touch screen could be down near you, somewhere you can reach, and you navigate on it, while you watch the big one.

    They have one at the local Rehab in the Volenteer dept. for signing in. Hmmm Sounds like something to investigate.

    I've seen that on Discovery channel.. The software If i remember is the tricky part.. it uses your eyes as referance... You could blink to click....

    Could be intresting, but a PITA to create.
