Title: [Speech Output to Enhance Reading]
Crystal is shown listening to speech output from a voice box as it
reads to her. A close-up view of the voice box is shown.
Crystal: “I have a voice box that it will read it to me, so I
understand what I’m reading.”
A computer monitor is shown. One sentence is highlighted in yellow,
and as each word is read it is highlighted in green.
Computer [synthesized speech]: “Was Helen Keller the first deaf-blind
person in the United States to be educated?”
Crystal talks while facing the camera.
Crystal: “And then when I have to, like, read books, I just scan
those so they can read the books to me so I don’t have to spend
two hours reading one page or something.”
