Okay, I got myself an oculus quest, but with paralysed hands the obvious problem was working the buttons on the controllers. I am able to get through menus, using one hand to point the controller and the other hand to press the buttons, but obviously this is no good for gaming et cetera.

So I have been looking into it, and you can use steam, and steam vr, to run the games on your computer and stream them straight to your oculus. However, pushing buttons rapidly on the computer is nearly as difficult as doing it on the oculus controllers.

I know there is a lot of people on here who do things hands-free, hence the speech recognition, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend any sip and puff controllers, which would operate the buttons and any joystick movement? I have found this,
https://www.quadstick.com/shop/quadstick-fps-game-controller


Can anybody recommend anything better and closer to home (so easier for any returns and maintainers)?

Any advice appreciated, Tremulous Tetra. :-)

The best controller for hands-free use is something called Quad Stick, it uses a modified PS3 controller that works with your mouth and Sip-n-puff controls. Yes it is a bit expensive but it's worth it, it can control your mouse also. Between using that and DPI you can run any game

Do you use Python and natlink, or stand-alone DPI?

yes I bought the Quadstick. I have been using it with Final Fantasy 14, but I haven't worked out a way to use it with oculus yet.

I have been gotten more and yet, I'm going to be getting one in about a week but I haven't used natlink at all for anything. I'm not a programmer so I quite don't understand Python

There is a bit of a learning curve in the the Vocola family (Python etc.) but it is notably more capable than KnowBrainer. Having said that, it's time to upgrade your KnowBrainer because we just released VB II and you quite literally only have to learn one command; that's it. VB II is literally WYSWYS (What You See Is What You Say) and there is nothing to memorize. We hope to start on the manual this weekend; mostly pictures. The KnowBrainer team is working on an outline for the manual now but all we have been able to come up with is one sentence so we will probably include lots of pictures and a few jokes to fill out the rest of the page. Can you still call it a manual if it's only a single page?

Click KBCommandsUpdater to download and run.  There will be a number of upgrades coming out because we are testing VB II and as you might imagine, there will definitely be a number of mistakes in this beta stage.

PS: One new feature: After you install and run the updater, you can delete the shortcut from your desktop. In the future you will only need to say Update KnowBrainer. The current Build is <%> KB Build 08-04-2020.
