    Abstract

    In total 84% of the population has access to a pc at home, and 61% of the working population use a pc at work. Long duration of time working with a computer is a risk factor for developing musculoskeletal symptoms. Speech recognition constitutes a potential tool for reducing and varying the workload for healthy and disabled computer workers.
