In todays' world, the latest cognitive technologies available in markets are not comprehensible to all the individuals. However some technologies are available that helps all the individuals to be more interactive with others in the society thereby reducing the technological divide. Some of the products are there like audio navigation system for blind people or video navigation system for deaf people or voice command wheel chair for physical disabled people etc. are enabling them to live better

There is lacks of cost effective intelligent interactive systems for an individual. This study proposes to develop a holistic approach using Human Computer Interaction to design an interactive system that minimize the barrier between the human's cognitive model of what they want to accomplish and the computer's understanding of the user's task by integrating techniques or applications to enable an individual to use the advanced technologies in more interactive manner. It is also planned to develop a prototype with minimal complexities and by retaining and enhancing the required features, thereby providing a supportive system that can meet the need of its deliberate users.
