This paper gives an overview of research within the aladin project, which aims to develop an assistive vocal interface for people with a physical impairment. In contrast to existing approaches, the vocal interface is trained by the end-user himself, which means it can be used with any vocabulary and grammar, and that it is maximally adapted to the . possibly dysarthric . speech of the user. This paper describes the overall learning framework, the user-centred design and evaluation aspects, database collection and approaches taken to combat problems such as noise and erroneous input.
