This study investigated the use of a word processor for enhancing the academic outcomes of three students with a writing disability in a middle school. A single-subject ABAB design was used to compare academic output produced during class time with and without a computer equipped with a word processor. The data demonstrated a clear difference between handwritten and computer phases.

The present study assessed the use of a voice-detecting (speech) sensor interfaced with a scanning keyboard emulator to allow two boys with extensive motor disabilities to write. Specifically, the study (a) compared the effects of the voice-detecting sensor with those of a familiar pressure sensor on the boys' writing time, (b) checked which of the sensors the boys preferred, and (c) conducted a social validation assessment of the boys' performance with the two sensors, employing psychology students as raters.

The effects of tutor-or computer-assisted word recognition (speech or voice) were assessed in a sample of third grade children. At pre-test, students' reading accuracy and fluency were evaluated on a training word list, generalization word list, and reading passages. Students were then randomly assigned to one of three group conditions—control (students practiced word lists alone), tutor-assisted, and computer-assisted—and given three training sessions.
