Default Quad looking to control RC system with the computer

I'm not sure if I have the right category or if I even have the right forum for what I need. I am a quadriplegic who is paralyzed from the neck down. I use a voice recognition software to control my computer. I am very interested in finding out if it is possible to use my computer to control an RC system with a couple of servos to control the position of a turrent/mount for a video camera system. I'm hoping that somebody can provide me with some information or at least point me in the right direction. Thank you, Paul

If I can be of any help let me know. I am a retired engineer but I don't have much test equipment

It looks like this is going to be a long process. As the project develops I'll definitely be giving some updates
