AAC in Arabic.
We all use forms of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) every day. People with severe speech or language problems may need AAC to help them communicate. Some may use it all of the time. Others may say some words but use AAC for longer sentences or with people they don’t know well. AAC can help in school, at work, and when talking with friends and family.
The HCI Lab's AAC applications were launched in 2010, with Sawty being among the first Arabic AAC applications deployed and the most widely used in the region by SLP practioners. Further development expanded the scope of the application through iterative co-design models with practioners, users, clinicians and their caregivers.
