This study investigated the role of online reading and simultaneous DECtalk (a text-to-speech computer system) auding in helping 192 above-average and below-average readers comprehend expository prose. Results showed significant differences among grades, reading levels, and modes of responses to the reading passages, but not for the experimental conditions. High student motivation was found. Similar results were obtained in a replication with poor readers. (Author/PB)
