Speech Recognition Software

Most of us have speech recognition software on our cell phones and computers (Siri, Cortana or Google Assistant). But did you know that speech recognition software can be used to help people with disabilities at work?

Individuals with dyslexia, limited hand/finger movement, learning disabilities and more can benefit from the use of speech recognition software. Check out this brief video from the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) to learn more about speech recognition software.

It is often beneficial to test assistive technology before purchase. The Texas Technology Access Program provides 30-day assistive technology loans to help match users with the technology that best fits their needs.
