This study examined whether the use of speech recognition technology by elementary and secondary students with learning disabilities (N=20) would demonstrate improvements in reading and spelling. Comparison with a control group indicated that the speech recognition groups showed significantly more improvement in word recognition, spelling, and reading comprehension. Analysis indicated that growth in phonological processing was responsible. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/DB)
