DOS: Computer Text Processor (S9898C)
Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities
The Computer Text Processor helps students with learning difficulties by retyping documents. This is an important service provided to students with special learning differences and candidates must be dependable and reliable. In all cases, confidentiality must be maintained.
Please Note: Training will be provided.
Specific responsibilities include, but may not be limited to:
The Computer Text Processor will scan textbooks and reserve readings through a high speed scanner for a specified course. He or she will transfer the text to a special software that converts it into “spoken word” using computer-generated voices. Text manipulation is sometimes required prior to a final transfer to disk, which involves either blocking the material or highlighting the material for reading separately. Sometimes converted documents need to be edited and sometimes slightly altered for easier reading. Sections and/or paragraphs may require retyping if material from textbooks has areas that were highlighted or underlined by a previous user of the text.
