Speak Math With MathTalk Using NaturallySpeaking(/DragonDictate(- MathTalk( for NaturallySpeaking(, MathTalk( for DragonDictate(, MathTalk( for LD, MathBraillleTalk(, MathPad( By Voice(.

This presentation will demonstrate voicing math using NaturallySpeaking and/or DragonDictate - MathTalk(/Scientific Notebook( 3.5 , MathPad( By Voice( and MathBrailleTalk(. Includes voicing math into Braille! This presentation will also discuss the Benefits of Speech Recognition.

Learn language of math.

Helps user focus when voicing math.

Learn to formulate thoughts before speaking.

User will learn to speak more clearly/distinctly.

Work is legible.

Do math faster -- saves many keystrokes.

Provides access to math for certain students.

For a bright, bored student, voicing math can create
interest.

For a slow learner, voicing math can give them incentive and
confidence.

MathTalk(/Scientific Notebook( 3.5 combined with Naturally Speaking( Professional 5.0 - the perfect combination for voicing mathematics and text dictation. This new product allows the user to voice math using "sentence commands".

This demonstration of MT/NS will show:

1. Learning/training modules for different levels of
math--pre-algebra, algebra, trig, calculus, stat.

2. Voice access to searches of commands.

3. Sentence commands which enable the user to speak variables
with variables.

4. Voice commands translating the math into Braille in the
Duxbury Braille Translator 10.3.

5. Easily add text from DragonPad by "go to dragon" and "go to
MathTalk".

6. Videos accessible by voice commands which show the use of
special features of the product!

This program is our MathTalk(/Scientific Notebook( 3.5 with the "echo" and "highlight" features.

This demonstration will show:

1. The student voices the mathematics

2. There is an "echo" of the math as it is placed on the
screen.

3. The math accomplished by that command is highlighted.

This program is being developed with input from a renowned institution which deals with LD.

MathPad( By Voice( This demonstration of MathPad By Voice will
show:

1. Voicing arithmetic using MathPad.

2. Optional toggle for readback of each entry.

3. Optional toggle for readback of problem and/or row.

4. Option to voice and key program.

5. Font can be enlarged to 72.

This demonstration will show creating math in the Duxbury Braille Translator with MathBraillleTalk(, and translating that math into Braille. Designed for a sighted person creating math for the visually impaired, this product will save thousands of keystrokes and mouse movements.
