Project background / Contexte du projet
Many people with disabilities might use a power recliner chair in their daily life to be seated in various positions or to be adequately seated for different activities. Some however are not able to push the buttons manually. The same types of remotes exist for hospital beds and other furniture as well.

Your task is to create a voice-operated button "pusher" to operate the recline and lift functions on a remote unit for a powered recliner chair. Alternatively the remote could be replaced altogether and a separate device could be plugged directly to the chair to accept the voice commands.
This could benefit many people as this type of device does not currently exist.

Here is an example of the type pf remote:
