AEM Strategy NEW
Scanning, Reading & Writing on Worksheets
Kelley Wilson, assistive technology specialist , at Eugene 4J, demonstrates how to use Readiris, ClaroPDF and Co:Writer to scan a printed curriculum worksheet to electronic text, read the text to the student via text-to-speech, and type on the worksheet using speech-to-text and word-prediction. This process allows a struggling reader and writer to read and fill out a worksheet or quiz independently, without relying on an adult reader and scribe. This is a great strategy for providing AEM to students that can also be implemented using other similar scanning, reading and writing apps.
