Microcomputer steno-interpreting technology allows the deaf to receive full access to the spoken word. The technology also benefits a variety of disabled people including the dyslexics, brain damaged people, and the deaf-blind. The Rapidtext software on a PC computer translates the stenowriter's output into English words and displays on a computer screen. The spoken English words are converted into text at up to 200 words per minute and displayed on computer screen. The technology also helps international audiences, people speaking English as a second language, and even illiterate people who speak English as their native language.
