I love your idea. But before remastering you really have to test the applications you want to use. There's not that much software around that allows using a computer without hands and every app needs time to customize it to the persons needs (eg Simon).

I don't want to discourage you, but remastering is the least of the work that has to be done here.

Good luck.

yes i will test,, (been doing it for months) , will do more. and i aim to give disabled people freedom to use the computer in a minimal way like just for browsing and word processing , and to open and close files,, , yes i have tested these, it works beautifully, the possibilities are limitless

this program uses the webcam to track your face and move accordingly, i am surprised at how accurate it is.
i will put up the program name later

hmmm remastering is a big concern, as i have to make it as small as i can, without unnessary stuff, i got remastersys now, will be doing it in a few days,,

i will give you a download link.. i will be happy if you could test it.

thanks anyway

Good luck on your exams .

What version of eviacam do you use? I don't see any better results so far compared to simon. BTW: Your post has nothing in common with Linux Mint. Please move it to a more appropiate forum.

Sry, you've got good ideas and you shouldn't close this thread; moving it to an appropriate forum (like the thrash bin) is much better.
Please learn many more things about linux and about distros. Please learn how to use google and forums (on topic ).

You asked for remastering help but you can't find the other program (simon!!! for **!!! ) that's totally into your idea.

Finally, i'd like to see moving this thread into the trash bin, it's totally off topic so far.

There's no point to help people without any basic knowledge.

Actually, that is exactly what LQ is for.

Well, you are the first one here that has to learn. Your post is not ontopic and has violated at least two of the forum rules:
Quote:
Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.
When posting in an existing thread, ensure that what you're posting is on-topic and relevant to the thread. If the content of your post will interfere with the current discussion, you should start a new thread.
So if you can't contribute to a thread please refrain from posting.
The OP clearly stated that he has currently no time to bring this project further along, so what is your problem with that? If the project is not going on fast enough for you, why don't you just do it yourself, but rather discourage other people in their effort to contribute to the Linux world?

@starklinux: Since kabookee seems rather to be willing to discourage people than actually help I searched the link to simon for you: http://sourceforge.net/projects/speech2text/

thanks for supporting me tobiSGD

thank you for supporting me real cool.
thank you for the link TobiSGD

i am just trying to help out people who lost their hands entirely with the help of linux.. from the link you gave for the speech to text i am getting new idea and better ways to make it better.. thank you again.

rahim ebrams
linux mint 13

update:i have been testing it with disabled people and it seems to be a hit, i tested this on accident victim who lost their hands, and the problem with speech is that its too hard to get it right, (for the Indian accent)
so facial recognition and a simple onscreen keyboard(onboard) works better and way faster for tasks such as browsing and simple text processing.
the program used is "eviacam" I am in the process of creating a website with the description and some tutorials.

again thanks for the support and help tobiSGD

I'm really sorry for sounding rude and off topic.

Back to Topic:
@TobiSGD: Remastering Linux Mint is the point of this thread; that's been requested from OP. How much more far off has this thread to get?

@starklinux: I don't see any fine affords in your linux world (yeah, i read through your posts you contributed to this forum); worse than that i don't see any fine work on disabled people you seem to be interested in and no sensible answers of yours.
I worked in RL for six years with those disabled ones (i'm working for free occasionally in my area) and i've no idea why you don't get a grip what this people really need that's not been there anywhere (please read my very first post again).
Your idea is great, but PLEASE add some computer knowledge and hard core RL experience to that. Please be a good guy around your block, not a funny arse.

Although the OP was ontopic obviously in his first and second post you already accused him of being offtopic. Also, you were the one starting to derail the thread with your first post.

And the point is? That nobody who hasn't contributed until now shouldn't start trying to contribute?

Because you haven't asked sensible questions, maybe? The OP clearly states that he is working with handicapped people, that he is testing the software with these persons and that he currently is writing documentation for it, which is one part of making a new distribution/remaster for a special purpose.

Sry, i don't see any efforts from starklinux. He's just writing stuff not related to a specific Distro.

@TobiSGD: I'm sure you missed some points of view. starklinux never ever told us his relationship towards disabled people. I'm really rigid on that topic, because i'm working with disabled people as an asscleaner ("social guy... wellwell...") AND as an IT guy. So i'm still really interested in starlinux' approach.

starklinux never ever posted any credible updates on his work. But reading through starklinux' general posts he seems to be stuck on that remastering thing (yeah, his OP).
Just in case he has something good going on he has to share that with the open source community he based his work on.
