Abstract
THE USE OF INTERACTIVE METHODS TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING PROCESS HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED IN CURRENT LITERATURE AND IS WIDELY ACCEPTED BY EDUCATORS IN THE FIELD. COMPUTERS ALLOW THIS INTERACTIVE METHOD TO PROLIFERATE AND PROVIDE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TOOL AVAILABLE TO MODERN EDUCATORS. VOICE IMPUT TECHNOLOGY CAN FURTHER FACILITATE THIS INTERACTIVE METHOD WHILE ALSO MAKING COMPUTERS MORE ACCESIBLE TO STUDENTS WITH NO COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN, AND HANDICAPPED USERS. A SPEAKER-INDEPENDENT RECOGNITION SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY SCOTT INSTRUMENTS CORPORATION (SCOTT) AND A FEASIBILITY STUDY IMPLEMENTED TO DETERMINE WHETHER SUCH A SYSTEM CAN BE INEXPENSIVELY MANUFACTURED FOR PURCHASE BY SCHOOLS FOR USE ON MICROCOMPUTER (ED SBIR GRANT NUMBER 300-84-0174, PHASE I-FEATURE-BASED RECOGNITION FOR SPEAKER-INDEPENDENT VOICE CONTROL OF MICROCOMPUTERS).
