This chapter introduces speech and language from a clinical speech and language therapy perspective. It describes key challenges that can impact upon speech and language with a focus on the needs of individuals with aphasia, an acquired language disorder. The spe-cific impact that aphasia may have upon Web accessibility is dis-cussed with reference to existing work which illuminates what we currently do and do not know about speech, language and Web ac-cessibility. The authors provide guidance for accommodating the needs of users with aphasia within the design of Web interactions and propose future directions for development and research.
