Using Linked Laptop Computers in the Classroom to Support Students With DisabilitiesBy Bailey, James; CSUN Technology and Persons With Disabilities Conference - 2002,

Paper discusses Project Computer-Based Collaborative Notetaking (CBCN), which is a four-year project carried out by the University of Oregon and funded by the United States Department of Education’s Office of Special Education. The project seeks to use laptop computers with collaborative writing software in order to allow students who are deaf or hard of hearing to view notes as they are composed in class by their non-disabled peers. The use of computer-aided speech-to-print transcription systems is also discussed, as this software allows for typing shortcuts and for classroom lectures to be displayed in real time as presented by the professor. Interested parties are encouraged to visit the program online (http://ces.uoregon.edu/cbcn/default.html) for further information.
