APEINTA (Spanish acronym for Proposal Aiming for an Inclusive Education based on Assistive Technology) is a Spanish educational project that aims for inclusive education for every student of all abilities in and outside the classroom. The APEINTA project is focused in two main inclusive proposals: One In the classroom and the other one Outside the classroom. This paper is focused on a subjective evaluation of the In the classroom proposal, where Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text to Speech (TTS) technologies have been used in order to avoid communication barriers among teacher and students. The project has been evaluated during different classes in 3rd course of Computer Science degree at the Carlos III University of Madrid, and during a talk in the ACAPPS (Federation of Families and Deaf People of Catalonia) Congress.
