Speech and Language Technology for Disabled Persons
Speech recognition and word prediction are technologies designed to increase the written communication rate for physically disabled individuals. Rate of text entry was compared between: (1) keyboard alone (2) keyboard with word prediction, and (3) speech recognition. Results showed that the greatest text entry rate was achieved with speech recognition, followed by keyboard and keyboard with word prediction, respectively. Four of five subjects indicated that speech recognition was easiest to use.
