Abstract:

Relatively inexpensive computer programs combining a word processor with a voice synthesizer are becoming increasingly available. The companies producing these programs are making claims that the use of a computerized voice synthesizer during the revision stage of the writing process will improve the writing product. This study examined the differences between the writing product of a group using a voice synthesizerword processor and a group using only a word processor. Analysis of the data collected indicates that the voice synthesizer, used without teacher intervention, has an adverse impact upon writers of varying academic ability. Author
