Visual creative forms, such as painting and sculpture, are a common expressive outlet and offer an alternative to language based expression. They are particularly benefcial for those who find language challenging due to an impairment–for example, people with aphasia. However, being creative with digital platforms can be challenging due to the language-based barriers they impose.In this work, we describe an accessible tool called Inker. Inker supports people with aphasia in accessing digital creativity, supported by previously created physica lartistic work.
