Mobile Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Technology

The research project will involve the development of features and techniques to aid people with communication disabilities through the use of consumer mobile devices (ex. smartphones) and tablet computers. Some of the major areas of interest include: location aware vocabularies, predictive sentence construction, and support for alternative input for people that also suffer from motor control problems. This work will directly benefit the partner organization by providing enhancements and breakthrough, cutting-edge, technology features to the MyVoice commercial product. These features will give MyVoice a competitive advantage in the AAC technology market and will provide a significant benefit to users of the application.
