The proposed system is a multi-modal system combining both visual and speech input. Visual input is provided through a standard web camera used for capturing face images showing the user of the computer. Image processing techniques are used for tracking head movements, making it possible to use head motion in order to interact with a computer. Speech input is used for activating commonly used tasks that are normally activated using the mouse or the keyboard. The performance of the proposed system was evaluated using a number of specially designed test applications. According to the quantitative results, it is possible to perform most HCI tasks with the same ease and accuracy as in the case that a touch pad of a portable computer is used.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/262||ISBN:||978-3-540-77581-2 (Online)||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-540-77581-2_28||Rights:||Springer Berlin Heidelberg||Type:||Book Chapter|
