Abstract [en]

According to the National Agency for Education 06-06-2010 are approximately 115 000 students graduating from Secondary School in the year of 2010.

Out of these students, we know that thousands of them are hampered by reading and writing disabilities in various degrees. Have these students been given the best support needed when it comes to writing and reading?

Compensation may be perceived as a goal for the pupil to catch up with the rest of the educational group or as a vehicle to go round the difficulties. In Sweden, diagnosed dyslexics are not allowed to use speech synthesis, a compensatory technical aid, during the 9th degree national tests.

This study’s purpose is to discover if the usage of speech synthesis during the national test of Swedish and reading comprehension might work as a motivation booster for the students and consequently increase their test scores.

This is a quantitative study including study including 15 pupils with diagnosed reading and writing disabilities. Seven of them are a part of a observation group and eight of them are a part of an experimental group. During week 6 all pupils carried out the national reading comprehension sample without aids. In week 18 the observation group did the test with the same instructions as before, while the experimental group implemented it with help from speech synthesis.

The result showed that the pupils using speech synthesis improved their test scores by 20% excluding pre effect.

The result also shows that the National Agency for Education’s rules for implementation of national tests in Sweden are not justified. According to today’s regulations it is ascertained that pupils with different sorts of functional disabilities are not treated equally.
