The development of speech technologies is especially significant for the disabled:

  • computers can read books, news from the Internet, e-mail and SMS messages to the visually impaired,
  • computers can convert what a speech impaired person writes into speech,
  • the physically disabled can communicate with the devices in their environment,
  • automatically recognized speech is easily translated into text which can then be read by people with hearing disabilities.
Speech technologies help the disabled overcome their disabilities to a certain degree, enabling them to become more independent and perform tasks they were not able to do before. The primer applications in Serbian-speaking community were created for the visually impaired, for whom a number of aids have been developed.
