PDF of book chapter available

Regular readers will know that, with Lizzie Coles-Kemp, I wrote an AAC-focused chapter in Digital Enlightenment Yearbook 2013:  the good news is that you can now download the chapter as a PDF!  The abstract for the chapter is:

There are many communities of ubiquitous computing users that are on the periphery of society, and these liminal users are often left to negotiate their relationship with technology without the help and support provided to more mainstream users. One such community is formed around users of Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) technology. Changes in the commercial landscape have brought within reach dramatic improvements in AAC and made them more accessible and supportive to their user community. These improvements, though overwhelmingly positive, amplify a family of personal data management problems that are similar to those experienced by more typical ubiquitous computing users. This paper argues that information manaagement practices deployed by the AAC user community are ones that mainstream society may benefit from using. Accordingly, this paper explores a number of personal data management problems that arise during AAC use and considers how AAC users have developed work arounds and information management practices to protect their personal information. Whilst this paper is focused on AAC technology, the responses could be generalised for a broader spectrum of society.

And we look forward to any comments.

  1. The work is in much more depth than I can fathom at this time. I taught a young gal w/CP and have been looking for a cheap alternative that includes audio-scanning. Last night I came upon this, which compares itself to prologue2go at a much cheaper price. It was developed by a parent and their professional colleagues.. I haven’t even had time to look it over yet…it may be the answer to a 7 year old prayer…who can afford Dynavox? http://www.alexicomaac.com/Home.aspx

    Good luck in you endeavors. I, too, am interested in AAC, but we can make it so complex and expensive that it is out of reach for those who need it most.
