Screen Readers and Voice Recognition Software
Voice recognition software is an alternative to typing on a keyboard. All you have to do is talk to the computer and your words are typed onto the screen. Voice recognition software can help with a variety of disabilities such someone with a physical disability who finds typing painful, people with dyslexia, or anyone who has spelling difficulties. This technology would help students with physical disabilities or dyslexia in the classroom type assignments, class notes, or even computer based projects. In today's technology based classrooms, this technology would help students in ways that were never possible before.
