Interacting with a tv using voice commands

Parkinson’s Patients sometimes find problems managing remote controls due to their hands’ tremors. This scenario illustrates how a simple remote control application may allows patients to improve their autonomy. The application looks like a common remote control interface plenty of buttons, but it also support a voice interface. If the key words are detected (“oh mighty computer”) then the application will try to recognize voice commands, for example, the number of the button that the patient would like to press. In this video, the patient find problems to press button 5, so he uses the voice interface saying the key words and then the number five.
