The available technology may enable many handicapped people to make use of telecommunication equipment and services. In this field, modern speech processing technology plays an important part. As a first step, it is necessary, in this context, to develop appropriate concepts for equipment and services which fulfill the needs of a maximum number of handicapped persons and, at the same time, promise economic success. For these purposes, a PC-based experimental system named COGNITO has been developed. Seen from a functional viewpoint, the present COGNITO version constitutes a telephone with advanced functions all of which are controllable by the human voice.
