The development of speech synthesis programs like text-to-speech (TTS), as well as that of speech recognition technologies, continues to putter along. The quality of TTS still outshines speech recognition, and a functional TTS program is valuable in meeting the needs of visually impaired learning management system users. But the ability to listen to any text that appears on the screen is helpful not only for the visually impaired, but for all learning management system students.
To be fair, speech recognition is also steadily evolving, and will especially benefit those learners using mobile internet devices like iPhones and BlackBerries to access their learning management system. The newly updated Google Mobile App is a good example of headway made in the speech recognition evolution.
