Discussion by Disabilities (Benefits & Preferred Behaviors)

Blindness

People who are blind may not be able to see text as they type, and thus can enter text more quickly and efficiently through a voice input system.

Low Vision

People who have very low vision may not be able to see text as they type, and thus can enter text more quickly and efficiently through a voice input system.

Physical Disabilities

People with severe physical disabilities may have difficulty typing or pointing with a traditional keyboard and mouse. Voice input can be used instead to type much more efficiently.
