Disabled people have great need for technologies that help them gain independence. As profiled in "Let's talk" (Special Report, Feb. 23), speech technology is one that gives the disabled access to computers. The Internet has great potential for sharing information about treatment and research. As I meet more people who have limited or no use of their hands, I recognize how critical this can be.
