Yesterday I gave the first talk at the spinal injury Association AGM with demonstrations of voice recognition scripting to create an exclusive demonstration-commands-only mode and control my iPhone from my computer ((very crude) scripts available at https://github.com/whIzz2000/natlink-py-scripts). My ongoing appreciation to the authors and maintainers of Natlink Vocola and Unimacro (software that enabled me to do the demo).

Well done to everyone involved! great talks from Ruth and Kirsten

Was an interesting day networking, seeing old friends and enjoying the Williams Formula One conference centre and museum, see photos on Flickr.

Was very pleased to meet HRH Princess Anne and talked about Nepal and save the children fund where she helped with my mum and dad back in the 70s.

Going to try to increase my usage of my Tobii PCEye gaze control device alongside voice recognition to improve the effectiveness of my PC usage. spurred on by impressive demonstrations from Hector.
