As the computer technology rapidly advanced, the text-to-speech function, or the synthetic speech, has matured on the Macintosh computers. Most computer users, though aware of the existence of such a technology, did not have real hands-on experiences with it and did not hold positive expectation on it. The current study examined the perceptions of teachers as well as of other people in non-education related field toward the use of such a technology. The results showed teachers' perception changed after they had been exposed to such a technology.
