David: I’m going to do a live demonstration now of the last example which was
voice recognition software. I’d like to note that voice recognition is g
enerally
used by students with TBI, orthopedic disabilities, and also students with learning
disabilities and ADHD. The three main functions of voice recognition software
are number one is to dictate text using your voice, to navigate the operating
system

by voice


and this is sometimes paired with text
-
to
-
speech so that we
can actually get text
-
to
-
speech out of the computer of what we’ve dictated. The
advantage of voice recognition is that it offers virtually hands
-
free control of the
computer. It also

offers students with LD and ADHD a method of composition,
which does not rely on spelling because the voice recognition software, even
though it may make a recognition error, will never make a spelling error. When
this combined with spell
-
checkers and ot
her built
-
in features, this is a formidable
composition tool for students with invisible disabilities.


My demo here is going to include four different things; dictation of text,
correction, navigation by voice and mouse control. So I’m going to put my
he
adphone on here. You’ll notice up here in the upper left
-
hand corner where the
mouse is, there is a microphone there. Right now, there are Zs above it because
it’s in sleep mode. I’m going to wake it up with my voice. Wake up. Wake up.
Definition of as
sistive technology comma new paragraph comma Any item
comma piece of equipment comma or system comma whether acquired
commercially comma modified comma or customized comma that is commonly
used to increase comma maintain comma or improve the functional cap
abilities
of individuals with disabilities period.


Definition of Adaptive Technology new paragraph. A subset of assistive
technology that provides access to information technology to provide electronic
and information access to people with disabilities pe
riod. Go to sleep.


By saying “go to sleep” I just turned the microphone off. And you can see that I
dictated the text into the computer and then it typed it, but you also may notice
that there were several errors. For example, in the first title, it mis
spelled
assistive and put ‘assisted.’ So I’m going to demonstrate how to correct that
error.


Wake up. Select assisted. Select assisted. Correct that. A

Choose one. Go to sleep.


So this allows me to correct the text. It also allows m
e to format the text and I’ll
give you an example of that.


Wake up. Wake up. Select ‘definition of assistive technology.’ Cap that. Go to
sleep.


Now I’m going to show you an example of how you can control the mouse.
Although this is not a really accessib
le interface to the mouse, it offers us some
control over the mouse. It also offers control over the operating system.


Wake up. Click start menu. Click programs. Click accessories. Click calculator.
Switch to Dragon Pad. Mouse grid. One. One. Four. Clic
k. Click exit. Click no. Go
to sleep.


So you can see with this demonstration that I have a relative amount of control or
hands
-
free control of the computer system. And that is really a boon to people
that either can use their arms and hands or alternative

input devices or students
that have trouble with compositions.
