The November 1989 issue of the Journal for Computer Users in Speech and Hearing contains a series of papers on future perspectives in computer use. All the articles share a common optimism and a degree of excitement regarding potential developments. Some of the predictions have come true, such as increased use of multimedia applications and widespread availability of CD-ROMs. Others, however, have not yet occurred. Specifically, we have not seen a substantial increase in the use of computers for assessment and intervention by the early 1990s. Although data from the most recent (1993) American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Omnibus Survey were not available at the time of this writing, personal experience in workshops suggests that the current situation is not markedly different from the one described in the 1991 survey, which indicated limited use of computers in assessment and intervention. Nevertheless, there are some changes on the horizon that may indeed impact future uses of the computer in speech-language pathology and audiology. Some of these are mentioned below.
