Abstract

This project consists of a tutorial audio tape that will teach the non-Spanish speaking listener to perform a complete vision/ocular health examination in Spanish. The 90 minute audio cassette presents a complete visual examination including: case history, entrance skills, external and internal ocular health check, an OEP'21 point' analytical exam, Keystone skills, biomicroscopy, tonometry, dilated fundus examination, and visual field testing. The examination is performed in English and Spanish. A written text accompanies the audio tape, providing visual reinforcement during the learning process. The speeches are presented first in English, followed by a translation to Spanish. A pause then allows the listener to repeat the Spanish phrase/sentence. The translation is in Mexican Spanish and is performed by a native speaker to aid the listener in developing the proper accent.
