BYTE marks its seventh anniversary with the theme Computers and the Disabled, graphically illustrated on the cover by Robert Tinney. Gregg Vanderheiden discusses how "Computers Can Play a Dual Role for the Disabled," and with coauthor Paul Schwejda demonstrates how to make an "Adaptive Firmware Card for the Apple II." David Stoffel reviews talking terminals for the blind, and William L. Rush evaluates the Abilityphone, a device for nonvocal communication. Patrick Demasco and Richard Foulds show how the Panasonic Hand-Held Computer can be used as a communication device in "A New Horizon for Nonvocal Communication Devices." Steve Ciarcia brings you his latest speech-synthesis system in "Build the Microvox Text-to-Speech Synthesizer: Part 1 - The Hardware," and Dr. William Murray reviews The Cognivox VI-1003, a speech-recognition system. Bruce Baker discusses his highly original Minspeak associative memory system for portable speech synthesis, and Alfred Fant Jr. shows you how to use a line printer to produce braille.
