Voice Indexing: A Programmed Text in Recorded Form.
Jahoda, Patricia A.; McKee, Nancy C.
Twenty-seven blind college students were interviewed on notetaking and studying techniques and were asked to participate in a study of voice indexing, which facilitates access to segments of audio tape. A programed text in recorded form on voice indexing was then pretested by 12 blind participants and revised, based upon findings. The text presents introductory material on uses of voice indexes, mechanics of tape handling, and the intellectual task of selecting tape segments and indexing terms. The programed text was then sent, in printed and recorded form, to approximately 400 offices of disabled student services at U.S. community colleges, colleges and universities and to state agencies serving the disabled.
