Social Entrepreneur - Sunny Cheung In a fast-paced city, computers are indispensable to our work and learning. Unfortunately, some persons with disabilities encounter difficulties in using a keyboard and a mouse due to limited muscle control and coordination. Sunny, a cerebral palsy patient, is only capable of typing with one finger since his physical mobility is one-fifth of that of other people. Admitted to university, he realised that his typing speed lagged behind others, which greatly impacted his time management in examinations. To overcome this obstacle, he developed a software programme - CP2Joy by combining a joystick and a voice recognition tool. With this programme, he could give vocal commands to control the computer by sounding the 5 vowels ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’ and ‘u’. Sunny hopes that the design would benefit disabled persons by facilitating their learning and exploration of the Internet world while boosting their productivity. Persons with disabilities use vocal commands to explore the Internet, crossing the digital chasm. Innovative Venture - CP2Joy System The innovative venture mentioned above is funded by the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund and assisted and supported by the Fund’s intermediaries in project implementation.
