Using Text-to-Speech Reading Support for an Adult with Mild Aphasia and Cognitive Impairment
Harvey, Judy; Hux, Karen; Snell, Jeffry
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v35 n1 p39-43 Nov 2013
This single case study served to examine text-to-speech (TTS) effects on reading rate and comprehension in an individual with mild aphasia and cognitive impairment. Findings showed faster reading, given TTS presented at a normal speaking rate, but no significant comprehension changes. TTS may support reading in people with aphasia when time limitations exist.
