Beukelman, D.R., & Fager, S.K. (2018, July). Selecting visual scene displays: Personal relevance of gender and age. 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.
- Visual Scene Displays (VSDs) are increasingly used to support communication for children and adults with complex communication needs.
- Current technology (e.g., Google Images) allows anyone to search for hundreds of images, making it easy and efficient to access pre-captured images.
- The purpose of this study was to investigate the eye tracking patterns of adults with and without disabilities who were cued to identify a VSD that represented activities such as sleeping, eating, drinking, writing, and reading.
- The authors aimed to investigate whether individuals focused on images consistent with their own gender and age.
