Screen Headers are an application of speech synthesizers. They
allow people with disabilities to use a computer. For example, a screen header will announce the address, page
title, a description of the page layout, and the contents of a website.
Into the future ...
A main focus in the field of speech synthesis lately is speech recognition.
This is a technology designed to recognize and respond to spoken commands through digitalizaion and algorithm-based programming.
This means that, not only will synthesizers be able to create speech, but they will also be able to understand
the speech of those responding.
