HKBU Master of Science in Advanced Information Systems student Cheung Sai-ho has developed voice-control computer software for severely disabled people in spite of his own physical and speech disabilities. The software, named “Cerebral Palsy to Joy (CP2Joy)”, is the first human-computer interface for severely disabled people in Hong Kong. It will enable those with severe disabilities to use the internet on their own, thereby reducing the digital divide. 

 

Sai-ho, one of the Top 10 Regeneration Warriors recognised by the Regeneration Society in 2013-14, plans to share a trial software with a local special school with the aim of benefitting more users in need.
