A significant number of users are not able to use today's WIMP-Style (Windows, Icons, Menues, and Pointers) Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). This may be for different reasons including hands-busy situations (e.g., a mechanic at work), paralysis, or bad neural control of body movements. To overcome these difficulties in the practical use of existing software applications, solutions have to consider both technical and commercial aspects. The system introduced by this work addresses both goals, i.e., develops and customises existing technical solutions and keeps an eye on the end-user's costs.
