Looking for people that may benefit from software to automatically make and end calls (Works with Puff/Sip and more)

Post by kennbp31 » 2 weeks ago

Great Afternoon! I am new to these forums, but look forward to being a part of this community!

I have written an application that helps individuals quickly and easily make skype video and phone calls. The application is configurable to work with adaptive technology such as a puff/sip device quickly and easily. In addition, it may be found useful by people with less severe disabilities.

This application was originally designed for use by my mother who had advanced Multiple Sclerosis and was unable to access a computer or other devices using any other adaptive technology such as speech recognition. Social Services were going to remove her from her home if she could not initiate a phone call to her primary care givers (Myself and my father). This application allowed her to make video calls using a puff/sip device and she lived at home until the end of her life as a result.

If there is an interest in the application, I plan to add more features such as TV controls, Environmental Control, and access to online media such as Netflix.

If there is anyone you know that may benefit from this software, or would like to use it yourself please give it a shot and provide me with some feedback! I am sure there are some bugs, but if you let me know what you find I will get them fixed ASAP.

The github page with information and installation is here: https://github.com/kennbp31/assist-and-support
The installer itself is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18tPmKq ... 9I64U/view

Thank you all for your time!
