- The implementation of the technical aspects of AAC within a country which often includes both software and devices for use by those with complex communication needs.
- Whether software has already been identified, the choice of platform or device which may be limited by the need to ensure that it is compatible with choices made.
- The specification shared by the developer will define the minimum operating system requirements to run the app.
