Hjelmquist, E.; And Others
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v86 n10 p426-28 Dec 1992
This study of 48 individuals with visual impairments (16 middle-aged with experience in synthetic speech, 16 middle-aged inexperienced, and 16 older inexperienced) found that speech synthesis, compared to natural speech, generally yielded lower results with respect to memory and understanding of texts. Experience had no effect on performance. (Author/JDD)
