  • Learning from Internet Requirements of People with Communication Needs
    "A supportive Web browser, developed by the EU WWAAC project, aims to make the Internet easier to use by people with complex communication needs who use graphic symbol-based augmentative and alternative communication. Further user consultations with older users, people with aphasia and people with learning disabilities, specifically with dyslexia, have demonstrated that the ability to personalize Internet software ...can potentially provide more accessible and usable interfaces for other user groups."
  • Automatic Modification of Text for People with Learning Disabilities Using Internet Services
