Speech and Language Technology for Disabled Persons
The impact of technology on speech rehabilitation is examined from an historical perspective. The electronic era brought with it a prolific number of developments. Many of the devices developed during this period were initially designed as speech-reception aids but proved to be more successful as aids for speech production. The computer era brought with it not only significant advances in speech rehabilitation technology but, more importantly, it has changed our way of thinking about the rehabilitation process.
