Research Institution
The project focuses on establishing a low-cost, school-operated, remote real-time transcription service for students with disabilities using speech recognition technology, off-the-shelf equipment and commonly available software. Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of this concept. In Phase II, the concept is expanded and refined through a transcription service for students with disabilities. The resultant training materials are used to develop a commercial product that allows other school systems to set up transcription services for students with disabilities.
