The convincingly convenient speech recognizing software, cheap and accessible, is strongly assumed as the potential antagonist of pen and typing hassle. It will allow anyone and everyone to write! Similarly the audio books will make all the illiterates the other way round with a click. The researchers aim to explore the potential existence and influence of digital tools in the domain of teaching literacy.
