Voice-Activated Remote Control


Standard Member
I've got MS and my hands have got to the point where I don't think I'll be able to operate a TV remote control within the next 6 months.

As I only watch TV when I go to bed at night until I fall asleep, has anyone ever come across a TV remote that can be operated by voice please?

I'm worried that without this I'm going to be staring at the ceiling for hours until I fall asleep in the years to come!

You could use the voice control in Android, and a smartphone remote control app for certain devices. A great app for voice control is tasker.

This would require quite some programming. Fairly easy, but depends how happy you would be with that.


Changing TVs for this might seem a drastic solution, but the Samsung system is a good one, and the idea is sure to catch on with other makers, so it could be a good idea in the long term.
