Technologies for ambient assisted living (AAL) are used to increase the quality of life of older or impaired persons. This contribution discusses the utilization of automatic speech recognition (ASR) as a natural interface for control of assistive technologies in everyday life situations. We focus on the use of hands-free systems, the technical challenges for the ASR software caused by this and the benefits for older persons. Moreover, state-of-the-art approaches for improving robustness of ASR systems are presented, discussed and demonstrated by an ASR experiment.
