Classifying AAC symbols for ease of use

Questions around the classification of symbols becomes even more important when considering a range of languages which have little in commone. In particular if they are not part of the European group of languages.

Issues around orthography and the changes that diacritics can make to text to speech output. Or left to right and right to left placement if one is thinking about moving through a sentence or phrases with a minimal number of selections and distance to cover.

We would like to share our questions with others in the field, in order to make decisions that suit as many AAC users, carers, families and professionals as possible. Here are some key points in a set of slides available on SlideWiki
