Default dell streak

I`ll start by saying i don`t know much about android phones & i can`t move my arms or hands due to an accident which broke my neck & left me paralyzed me from the neck down.

I can use a computer with this device.
Origin Instruments Corporation

What i`m trying to find is an app that can do mostly all the functions on the phone.
I`ve found a fare few but they we either not compatible with my phone or there not comprehensive enough for me.

any comments or help will be much appreciative
Oh shit i`ve not even told you what phone i`ve got lol.
Anyway the phone is a Dell Streak!

cheers

You might check in to Vlingo to see if it suits you needs. And there are various threads about it here on the forum telling pros and cons - as I recall there were more pros than cons.

Another one that's getting good initial comments is Edwin, which also has some threads here. Edwin has the additional benefit of being free, so it won't cost anything to give it a try.

I`ve got loads of links about voice control from Clinical Scientist that comes there also gonna make a bracket for when i`m in bed & stick sort thing which goes into my mouth & some sort of stylus on the end.

i`m after somthing that can a pc can control it.

plus the voice control is`nt exactly inconspicuous when it comes to privacy if you know what i mean!

I`ve found this but the comments or pretty bad.

You can also try Android Sreencast, though you need to root your phone. There's not that much information out on the net on this app though.

http://code.google.com/p/androidscreencast/

It's discussed in XDA: [Tool] Android Screencast 0.4 (open-source) - xda-developers

If you don't know what root is...I don't suggest you go down that path then unless you are tech savy or have a tech savy friend. Rooting gives you basically Super User permission where you have control of every aspect of your phone/tablet. You can put custom ROMs on, over/underclock the CPU etc.

Well if it's a last resort and you can't find an alternative...and really need this feature, I found that the Dell Streak has been rooted: Dell Streak Has Been Rooted? | Android Community

Here you go: 30/Jun r2 4399 - How to root your Dell Streak (Superboot) - Android @ MoDaCo
I'd recomend you join Modaco and read as much as you can on rooting your dell...you might want to check youtube and see if there's a video instruction. Only root when you feel confident in your ability (i.e. research, research, research).

Have you thought to try posting in the forum for developers? It's possible that the app you're looking for may not exist, but someone may be interested in creating it, especially if it's something they can charge for.
