Speech Recognition for Students with Disabilities in Writing

PDERS Volume 26, Number 2,


The role of technology in education is ever increasing. This article looks at students with disabilities and the problem of writing independently. Speech recognition technology offers an option, or solution, for students who have physical and/or learning disabilities and for students who cannot access and use computer keyboards or switches. Classroom use of the speech recognition software program packaged within most personal computers is suggested.
