Document 1.pdf (319 KB)


Abstract

A concise outline of background is given on assistive methods for writing and communicating for non-speaking people, highlighting the role of efficient text entry in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). AAC systems are designed to assist people with communication impairments to interact with others and to compose messages and other documents. Efficient text entry is therefore of great importance in AAC, in order to make it as easy as possible for text users to enter text into AAC systems. Continuing research and development is needed in the area of text entry to improve the efficacy and efficiency of AAC systems.
