    Research in communication for people with vocal impairment has led to the development of scanning systems by which the movement of a small number of muscles e.g., jaw clenching can produce an output text to express their intentions to a trained assistant. This output is usually in a natural language. This paper discusses the development of a programming environment in standard microcomputer system... View full abstract»
