Computerized Speech Writer
by Ron Kurtus (revised 29 November 2002)
Sometimes people have problems putting together their thoughts for a speech or presentation. One solution is to get stimulate the thought process through some external sources. To do this, I have programmed a computerized speech writer that you can use to outline a simple speech.
Questions you may have include:
- How can the computer stimulate my thought process?
- What are important elements in the process?
- Can I really create a speech here?
This lesson will answer those questions. Your assignment is to use the program to write a simple speech.
This computer application won't think for you, but it can help to stimulate your thought process and assist you in putting together a simple speech or essay. By guiding you through your speech with a series of questions and then putting your answers together in the form of a speech, you will be able to visualize what you want to say.
You can also use a similar method by writing down your own questions or by having a friend ask you some questions about your topic.
Topic is Important
The most important thing is that you have an idea of what you want to talk or write about. This topic is usually a problem or concern that you wish to discuss.
Instead of just reporting a situation or complaining about a problem, we are looking at providing some possible solutions. That is what the audience, your customer, or your supervisor at work wants to hear about.
The method to create your speech is to simply follow the instructions and fill in the blanks. Use your Tab key to move to the next area to input text. (If the Tab key does not work for you, use your mouse. The Enter key will not work.) When you are through answering the questions select the "Create Speech" button to see the results of your input.
You can use this Computerized Speech Writer to assist you in organizing your speech or written material. Also, its use should give you some ideas of how to write your speech on your own.
