While the system has some limitations, a virtual world with a reasonably reliable speech interface has been developed almost entirely from software which is available at minimal cost. Improvements and further testing are considered. Such a system would clearly improve access to virtual reality (VR) technologies for those without the skills or physical ability to use a standard keyboard and mouse. It is an example of both assistive technology (AT) and universal design.
