Speech technology for e-inclusion of people with physical disabilities and disordered speech

Mark S. Hawley, Phil Green, Pam Enderby, Stuart Cunningham, Roger K. Moore

Speech technology is potentially of enormous benefit to people with physical disabilities. Applications of speech technology to e-inclusion are reviewed and described in the areas of access, control, communication and rehabilitation/therapy, with particular reference to speech technology developments for people with disordered speech. To be successful, applications should effectively take into account the needs of user groups and have the ability to adapt to the needs of individuals. This is a challenging area but effective progress can be made through multi-disciplinary research and development.
