Basic AAC Grid Solution

Objective

Basic grid for Alternative and Augmentative Communication including a simple on-screen keyboard with speech synthesis.

Description

The grid provides cells with basic communication topics (e.g. Help, Eating, Environment) and also provides a basic on-screen keyboard. A cell can be triggered by several modalities depending on the capabalities of the user. Currently the input options clicking, scanning (for switch-based control) or hovering (for eye-tracking based control) are supported. If clicking is enabled, the solution can also be operated by the Camera Mouse Solution or Eye Tracking Solution. Additionally, the grid text and images can be edited. Each grid has a unique link and is automatically synchronized when using the same link on different end devices.
