Abstract

Current technology enables instructors to have their spoken words computer-translated into written text on a television screen. In considering the potential application of such a real-time captioning system for communication and as a model of English in classrooms for young deaf students, it is essential to first discover the words teachers in such classrooms most often use so the computer can be programmed to instantly recognize them. The authors of this study generated a list of more than 1,000 most frequently used words through classroom observation and present their findings here. The investigators believe their results have applications beyond the immediate purpose.
