Voice Recognition for Students With Mild Disabilities: Guidelines for Training and SupportBy Walser, Paula, MS/CCC, SLP, ATP; CSUN Technology and Persons With Disabilities Conference - 2002,
Publication Date: 2002
Paper focuses on portable computer technology that supports voice recognition technology, which can help students with mild disabilities who have difficulty with the mechanical aspects of writing. When using voice recognition technology, users simply dictate text into a microphone, while the system creates a user-specific voice file that incorporates data on the user’s unique voice qualities and pronunciations. Keystone 2000 is listed as an example, as the program features a spell check application, and it works with Microsoft Word. The program also allows documents to be scanned for words that are phonetically similar.
