Survey for Students with Orthopedic Impairments Regarding Use of Voice Recognition Software

My name is Felix Diaz. I am a retired US Army veteran and a teacher serving as the Testing Coordinator at Miami Jackson Senior High School in Miami Florida. I am presently engaged in a dissertation as part of the requirements for a PhD in Computing in Education from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL. My dissertation advisor is Dr. Trudy Abramson who you may contact at

I am requesting your assistance in completing a short survey on the use of assistive technology to aid orthopedically impaired (OI) students’ writing and note-taking in the inclusive high school classroom. The intent is to determine the pervasiveness of the use of speech recognition software to aid OI students in U.S. high schools. The survey can be completed in five minutes or less.

Please complete the survey as soon as possible, but no later than the end of June 2013. Survey results should be available no later than the end of August 2013. If you are interested in the survey results, you may provide your email address as the last response in the survey.

For questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact me at or at 305-634-2621, extension 2151. Thank you for considering my request.
