Effects of Speech Synthesis on the Proofreading Efficiency of Postsecondary Students with Learning Disabilities.
Raskind, Marshall H.; Higgins, Eleanor
Learning Disability Quarterly, v18 n2 p141-58 Spr 1995
This study investigated effects of speech synthesis on proofreading efficiency among 33 postsecondary students with learning disabilities. Using a speech synthesis system enabled subjects to detect a significantly higher percentage of errors, though having text read aloud by another person remained the most effective way to find "grammar-mechanical" errors.
