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.
- Using an AAC device for spontaneous conversation can be very slow.
- The goal of this study was to develop a technology-based vocabulary supplementation strategy to increase the speed of message formulation and partner engagement by relying on partner word knowledge.
- The authors developed SmartPredict, a novel app designed to engage the partner and still enable the AAC user to produce efficient messages while maintaining control.
