I am using a piece of technology called Dragon Dictate. I speak, and the words appear on my screen and then I can print them out. It’s made a huge difference to me. It’s made me achieve things I only dreamt of.
I used to have a teacher, she’s passed away now and one day she said to me. ‘You’re going to do your Maths GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education).’ I said, ‘No I’m not. Don’t be silly.’ I didn’t think I could do anything like that. Studying was so difficult because I had to rely on someone to type everything into a computer for me.
But that’s changed now. I can do it myself with my voice.
|Silly||Something which denotes lack of evaluative thought|
|Rely on||To depend on somebody or something|
