Willis, Lori H.; Koul, Rajinder K.; Paschall, D. Dwayne
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v35 n1 p106-14 Mar 2000
A study evaluated the performance of 12 individuals with mental retardation on a post-perceptual discourse comprehension task. Three text-to-speech systems (DECTalk, MacinTalk, and Real Voice) were used to present stimulus passages. The DECTalk synthetic voice showed a non-significant trend toward superior accuracy scores on the comprehension tasks. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
