6. How can one best determine whether or not an individual student can use voice recognition?

To rule voice recognition in or out, the student must have the opportunity to try voice recognition, perhaps over several sessions. If a school has purchased a system for multiple users, appropriate students can experiment with the approach in this setting. Alternatively, this exploration can be done with the help of an assistive technology evaluation team in a clinical setting or a person who routinely trains users. In either case, be cautious when working with trainers who also sell the software, because their assessment of the student's potential may be colored by their desire to sell the product.
