Allow control by gesture

This feature will allow users to control by gesture with any body part(s) (hand, facial, posture, etc.). By recognizing gestures that originates from any bodily motion or state, the feature enables a user to interact with the system naturally without manipulating any mechanical devices.

Blindness

Blind users will find it easy to control by gesture since it doesn’t require accurate pointing and locating.

Cognitive, Language, Learning Disabilities & Low Literacy

Control by gesture can simplify complex actions and make interactions easier for people with cognitive impairments.
