Microcomputing in Speech Communication: A Report of the Task Force on Use of Computers.
Cummings, H. Wayland, Ed.
The essays in this volume explore the ways the Speech Communication Association (SCA) might use the computing technology of the microprocessor. The six chapters focus on the following topics: (1) ways the new technology will impact on the processing of manuscripts for speech journals and the SCA's national conventions, with particular emphasis on the role of teleconferencing, electronic mail, telemarketing, and polling; (2) the kinds of information utilities currently available that might be of particular use to members of the SCA; (3) the results of a survey conducted in 1984 to locate members who use the computer in their work, and the scope and extent of that usage; (4) methods by which to assess the value of computer assisted instructional materials; (5) computer simulations and ways to implement their use; and (6) some of the consequences of either failing to recognize the value of the microcomputer or of attributing to it human or, worse, superhuman qualities.
