Abstract

Current voice control solutions for PC's rely on providing voice commands to interact with a system that is fundamentally designed to be used with a keyboard and a mouse. This means that a number of problems are presented when you try to use voice control of a current graphical user interface (GUI) desktop. Things such as switching window context, moving windows around, and re-sizing windows are practically impossible to do using voice control. A solution is needed that moves away from these difficult concepts and provides easy desktop management for voice control systems to produce a control mechanism which would allow a computer to be used without any access to a mouse or a keyboard.
