Expert communication aid users wanted for VIVOCA project

Submitted by admin on 10 August 2010 - 1:40pm
Barnsley Assistive Technology Team and Sheffield University are looking for participants to take part in a research study - the team is looking for expert communication aid users and also people who have rejected the use of communication aids.
This study is part of a research project developing a ‘voice-input voice-output communication aid’ (VIVOCA) - a communication aid that recognises some dysarthric speech. The VIVOCA project is focused around including potential users of such a device at all stages of the development process and this study is the first stage of this user involvement. Later on in the project we will also be seeking users to be involved in the development and trial of the device, which already exists as a prototype.
