>So the user can write, speak or draw their request

So what's wrong with the Keyboard and mouse solution, they are proven, they dont break down very often and the simply work.

Speaking requires interpretation.

Writing requires interpretation.

Drawing requires interpretation.

Interpretation leads to false positives, then having to repeat the command again and again, a long learning phase etc etc ...

In other words, they are far more pain than they are worth....for anything but minimal commands ( swiping on a smartphone is fine)
