Abstract: Communication board is one of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) which provides a large amount of pictures classified under various categories. It is a useful instrument for disabled people, who are suffering from speech and language impairment, to facilitate their communication by simply selecting pictures. The traditional communication board would assist the users to communicate with the others. However, there are a number of limitations of the communication board such as large in size and difficult to carry. Because of the advanced technology, it is inexpensive to purchase a mobile device. In this paper, we present our mobile augmentative and alternative communication application, namely MAAC app, for disabled people. The MAAC app runs on the Android-based mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. This application is suitable for disabled people who are suffered from cerebral palsy, spasm and stroke. We performed user acceptance test (UAT) with domain experts on the application and the overall comment is positive. (More)
