Accessibility of computer therapy and technology for people with aphasia

Roper, A. (2014). Accessibility of computer therapy and technology for people with aphasia. ACM SIGACCESS Accessibility and Computing(108), pp. 50-53. doi: 10.1145/2591357.2591366


Language difficulties present within aphasia can substantially affect a user’s ability to access and interact with technology. Surprisingly however, there is comparatively little research into the impact of this condition upon accessibility. The described project aims to examine general technology access and confidence in users with aphasia. It additionally seeks to shed light on the specific cognitive and linguistic factors affecting rehabilitative therapy technology use. Using an interdisciplinary approach, outcomes are intended to provide new language and technology insights to both the accessibility and the speech and language therapy communities.
