Hi, My name is Lynn. My husband who needs your brain working on this one. Geoff has had a brain disease for a good many years. He was in advanced IT to the future on the circuit electronics, for the top 8 car manufacturers. Before his brain condition he had a chance working for Windows / Facebook with other knocking on the door !!!. At the present time the disease has effected Geoff which he still could use a computer. Geoff now is severely blind and deaf complete in right side facing Geoff the other he's a aid, He now his unable to talk and classified mute. He is paralyzed 65% of body. His only communication is alphabet on palm to communicate. He is strapped in a wheel chair most times but unable to grip his wheelchair on carpet only vinyl/wood floor with weakness in hands. My inquiry is have you got any idea of how geoff can communicate with IT as he thrived on his IT but fell short of his futuristic ideas. Dragon 13 was his last software after he became mute the soft ware is no good. He was working on software but time beat him and his own trials, can any one help with the complex IT issue.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry to hear bout your husbands illness. With his current disabilities and motor skill, I am at a loss trying to think of any device out there that may help him.  The closest thing I can relate to is Stephen Hawkings. You may want to read the wiki on him and see how he communicates.  Something similar may work for your husband.

    It looks like a very complex situation and establishing a communication mechanism is quite difficult.

    Hello ToddN2000 I have forward on five contacts to Dr Steven Hawkins and unfortunately he has not answered any of my replies. I am not criticizing Dr Steven Hawkins he must have reasons for not getting back. With all the technology we have no one should live in a tomb of the unknown. Top professors in this field have been stumped. Again friends I'm appealing to send this situation amongst you Technology at the moment is physical disabled friendly and yet it should not. Please help in this technology world of ours.

    Hello Jaideep Khanduja, Yes a very complex situation. but like I said what was put for ToddN2000 with all the technology we have world wide and asked all the top names for advice technology should never be far back as this to over come a complex situation. IF we can send sati lights into space then surly the human race should not suffer in a tomb of stillness darkness, Please pass on to friends in the industry Jaideep if you kindly would who knows some one must have the answer to beat the software. Thank you Jaideep for your reply.

    You may want to look into some device described in this PDF. IT may get you going in the right direction. They might be able to be modified for your husbands specific issues.
