Introducing voice recognition to dyslexic users in a specialist school

The use of voice recognition software (VRS) is described in a specialist school for dyslexic children. The article outlines the use of software in Year 10 (ages 14-15) and how the VRS can be used in conjunction with other self-correcting dictation software to produce high levels of accuracy. It is concluded that, with appropriate software, voice recognition systems can be a real benefit to dyslexic pupils in their writing.
