Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v8 n2 p75-87 Spr 1997
Thirty-seven college students with learning disabilities were given a reading comprehension task under the following conditions: (1) using an optical character recognition/speech synthesis system; (2) having the text read aloud by a human reader; or (3) reading silently without assistance. Findings indicated that the greater the disability, the more the technology elevated comprehension. (Author/DB)
