ABSTRACT
We present a system whereby the human voice may spec-
ify continuous control signals to manipulate a simulated 2D
robotic arm and a real 3D robotic arm. Our goal is to move
towards making accessible the manipulation of everyday ob-
jects to individuals with motor impairments. Using our sys-
tem, we performed several studies using control style vari-
ants for both the 2D and 3D arms. Results show that it is
indeed possible for a user to learn to effectively manipulate
real-world objects with a robotic arm using only non-verbal
voice as a control mechanism. Our results provide strong
evidence that the further development of non-verbal voice-
controlled robotics and prosthetic limbs will be successful.
