Are there voice recognition programs students can use to do math?
Yes. For example, MathTalk, a software program that can be used with Dragon Naturally Speaking speech input products, allows students to input via voice math expressions, formulas, and even graphs. MathTalk can be used at basic and advanced math levels and for scientific applications. Its capabilities are useful to students with disabilities who cannot use a standard keyboard.
