An Exploration of the Potential of Automatic Speech Recognition to Assist and Enable Receptive Communication in Higher Education
Wald, Mike
ALT-J: Research in Learning Technology, v14 n1 p9-20 Mar 2006
The potential use of Automatic Speech Recognition to assist receptive communication is explored. The opportunities and challenges that this technology presents students and staff to provide captioning of speech online or in classrooms for deaf or hard of hearing students and assist blind, visually impaired or dyslexic learners to read and search learning material more readily by augmenting synthetic speech with natural recorded real speech is also discussed and evaluated. The automatic provision of online lecture notes, synchronised with speech, enables staff and students to focus on learning and teaching issues, while also benefiting learners unable to attend the lecture or who find it difficult or impossible to take notes at the same time as listening, watching and thinking. (Contains 7 notes.)
