Fager, S.K., Gormley, J., & Beukelman, D.R. (2016- November). Visual cognitive processing demands of keyboard layouts for individuals with and without TBI.

Fager et al. (2016) Poster

  • After severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), some literate individuals who require AAC to support communication, use onscreen keyboards to generate text.
  • A range of layouts are available for these individuals–However, limited information is available on the visual-cognitive processing demands of the various layouts to guide clinical decision-making for keyboard selection.
  • This study investigated whether there was a difference in the visual-cognitive processing demands between a QWERTY and ABC (alphabet) onscreen keyboard for individuals with and without a TBI.
