Abstract: We present electromyography as an interface to control computer applications. Our prototype makes possible for users to control any application through muscle contractions. Electromyographic device portability and the monitoring possibility for any muscle voluntarily contracted can bring great benefits at the mobility level as in accessibility issues. Through operating system events emulation and their association with determined muscle contractions we can replace the pointing device or some keyboard elements, achieving control of any application. Usability evaluations validate electromyography as a daily wearable interface where we show that it can be used even in a mobility context. Considering accessibility, we present a synergy between applications that ease message writing. Evaluations show that this synergy outperforms existent text-entry interfaces, based on point and click approaches.
