Thanks to Daniel Cochrane and Kelly Key
Use this simplified task sequence to explicitly teach the Speech Recognition Writing process:
This is a teaser! Many of these skills must be taught. Learn much more from Cochrane and Key's Speech Recognition as AT for Writing: A Guide for K-12 Education.
- THINK IT: Think about your topic and what you want to write.
- Mentally compose your sentence, punctuation included.
- Hold the sentence (or part of it) in memory.
- Turn on the microphone
- SAY IT: Say your sentence with clear enunciation but in a natural manner (not too slow or too fast). Add the correct punctuation at the end.
- Turn off the microphone.
- CHECK IT: Check the recognition accuracy. Students with weak decoding skills should use text-to-speak software to assist with the writing process.
- FIX IT: Fix the recognition errors manually or verbally
