User Interfaces for a computer-based grammar correction tool for deaf and hard-of-hearing writers
A prototype of a computer-based English writing assistant (Composition Corrector, or CC) was developed with NIH SBIR/STTR funding in 2005; this system automatically detects grammatical errors in English written by deaf and hard-of-hearing writers. A user interface (UI) for CC is being designed as a supplemental project associated with the VL2 Science of Learning Center at Gallaudet.
