Venkatagiri, H. S.
American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, v4 n4 p36-45 Nov 1995
This paper summarizes selected findings on approaches to increasing the rate of communicatively appropriate responses in augmentative and alternative communication. Six approaches--efficient keyboard layouts, reduced keys keyboards, Minspeak with Words Strategy, enlarged keys keyboards, abbreviation expansion, and lexical prediction--are reviewed and rated. For literate AAC users, the alternative keyboards are recommended. (Author/DB)
