O’Neill, T., Wilkinson, K., & Light, J. (2018, July). Eye-tracking measures reveal how changes in the design of communication technology interfaces influence visual attention patterns by individuals with neuro-developmental disabilities. Poster presented at the State of the Science Conference of the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (RERC on AAC), Arlington, Va.
- Individuals who use AAC must be able to attend to and extract visual information from displays.
- Therefore, the design of AAC technologies must be grounded in a theoretical understanding of visual cognitive processes.
- This study investigated the visual attention to AAC displays that included a main VSD and a navigation bar, in one of four locations (top, bottom, left, or right).
