Speech Recognition Technology
Essential Question: What is SRT?


How does SRT benefit students?

  • Dictation requires students to read aloud.  This practice often increases oral reading efficiency, drive improvements in word recognition and pronunciation, along with fluency and comprehension.
  • Allows students with physical disabilities, especially those without the use of their hands, the abilities to keep pace with peers with normal hand function.
  • Helps students with learning disabilities by allowing them to write without worrying about spelling, freely writing down ideas, and helps fix grammar both in written and speech form. 


 How does SRT benefit educators?

  • Educators will be able to read and respond to student’s material faster.  In the digital environment, educators will be able to add detailed comments providing instant feedback to student assignments.
  • Educators will not be limited to stand alone computing as mobile computer applications become available.
