Abstract
A GROWING NATIONAL NEED EXISTS FOR COMPUTER WORK STATIONS WHICH INTEGRATE MANUAL DATA BASE PREPARATION FUNCTIONS FOR INCREASED ACCURACY, CONTROL AND PRODUCTIVITY. THESE WORK STATIONS COULD INCORPORATE DISABLED INDIVIDUALS SUFFERING FROM A VARIETY OF HANDICAPS INTO THE WORK PROCESS. THE RESEARCH IS DIRECTED TOWARD DEVELOPING BETTER USE OF COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY IN THE EDUCATION, TRAINING, AND PLACEMENT OF HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS. SPECIFICALLY, A MORE ACCURATE MANUAL DATA INPUT SYSTEM FOR COMPUTER DATA BASES ISDEVELOPED WHICH WILL UTILIZE THE FUNCTIONAL CAPACITIES OF HANDICAPPED PERSONS IN THE PROOFREADING PROCESS. AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE GROWING DATA BASE ERROR PROBLEM INDICATES THAT THE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE, HENCE ACCURACY, CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED BY USING AN INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH. COMPUTER DATA BASE KNOWLEDGE AND SCIENCE WILL BE USED WITH RECENT THEORETICAL DISCOVERIES FROM OPTOELECTRONICS AND BRAIN RESEARCH TO DEMONSTRATE THE PRACTICALITY OF THE APPROACH.
