How to Use Speech Recognition as AT for Writing

Presented by: Daniel Cochrane / Kelly Key

About the Webinar

Speech Recognition technology has become a ubiquitous part of life—we can ask Google to turn on the lights, dictate text messages to Siri, and even order a pizza through Alexa.

 

But how can we best use this technology as an accommodation for our students throughout the school year and during testing?

Daniel Cochrane and Kelly Key share the path to using speech recognition as AT for writing through a systematic process:

  1. Consider It as part of the assistive technology consideration
  2. Try It out with students using a systematic process
  3. Assess It with data to show if it works
  4. Implement It to maximize student success
