Metroplex Voice Computing, Inc. (MVC) continues to be the leader in speech recognition mathematics products for the physically/visually challenged.

Speech Recognition + Mathematics = OPPORTUNITY! MathTalk™/ScientificNotebook™ for NaturallySpeaking™ and for DragonDictate™, MathTalk/Scientific WorkPlace™, MathTalk™ for LD, MathPad™ By Voice™.

This presentation will demonstrate voicing math using NaturallySpeaking and/or DragonDictate - MathTalk™/Scientific Notebook™ 4.0 and MathPad™ By Voice™ . Includes voicing math into Braille, as well as voicing the Windows calculator! A discussion of the Use and Benefits of Speech Recognition will also be included in this presentation.

Using Speech Recognition:

- Evaluating users.
- Providing access to math for certain students.
- Importance of environment.
- System requirements.
- Creating interest for certain students.
- Use of Training Modules for learning different levels of math.
- Benefits of using speech recognition beyond accomplishing task.
- Building confidence.
- Learn language of math.
- Helps user focus when voicing math.
- Formulate thoughts before speaking.
- Clearer, more distinct speech.
- Legible work.
- Accomplish task faster.

MathTalk™/ScientificNotebook™ for Naturally Speaking™ - MT/NS

MathTalk™/Scientific Notebook™ 4.0 combined with Naturally Speaking™ Professional 6.0 - the perfect combination for voicing mathematics and text dictation. This product allows the user to voice math using "sentence commands".

This demonstration of MT/NS will show:

- Use of Training Modules for learning/training different levels of math--pre-algebra, algebra, trig, calculus, stat.
- Voice access to searches of commands.
- Speaking variables-with-variables using Sentence Commands to accomplish math FASTER!.
- Voice commands translating the math into Braille in the Duxbury Braille Translator 10.3/10.4.
- Adding text easily from DragonPad by "go to dragon" and "go to MathTalk".
- Videos accessible by voice commands which show the use of special features of the product!
