I am a Business teacher, teaching computer applications and Digital Communications, which are vocational courses. Technology courses gives students an instant lead way to the job market after graduation. Students learn every aspect of business documents and their appropriate usage. Major business technology equipments are introduced to them and training is offered. Most of my students are from low income homes, but very focused in their school activities. We are the only comprehensive school that made the ABC this year within our attendance area and we are proud of our students, because they made the accountability rating with the limited resources that are available to them. Teachers in my school believes education is the best gift and we are trying hard to give that to our students, even if it means begging and writing grants to enhance learning.

Speech recognition is part of the curriculum for Digital Communications. But learning and training your voice cannot be done without the use of Speech Recognition Microphones. My students love this part of the course curriculum but they cannot learn it effectively without hooking up microphones to the computers. Speech Recognition Microphones are one of the long list of things we are lacking in our technology classrooms.

Speech Recognition Microphones are needed to produce clear sound speech input, to teach the students how to dictate letters, emails and surfing the web by voice.

Please make a difference in our technology classrooms. We are deeply in need of these Speech Recognition Microphones to enhance the training of speech recognition program. Our students are from low income families, but we are not low learners. We are making use of the limited resources that are available to us. Help us please. Thank you
