One-hundred thirty-two projects concerning technical aids for the speech handicapped are summarized as a result of an international survey of 270 institutions. Introductory tables allow access to projects by diagnosis (type of speech impairment such as stuttering or aphasia laryngectomy) or type of technical aid (such as communication boards or speech output devices). Usually provided for each project are the title, the principle investigator (name, institution, and address), type of study, type of speech defect, project result, manufacturer's name and address, and brief comments. A listing of participating institutions arranged alphabetically by countries is appended. (DB)
