AI and Symbols for Festivals

Festivals around the world come with many symbols and Christmas is no different. At this time of year here in the UK it is Christmas time and there are lots of fir trees with decorations. AI image to image systems seem to cope well with them but this is not always the case with other types of pictographic symbols!

ASHA Convention 2023 and new Cambodian Symbols

ASHA Convention 2023 is all about "Igniting Innovation" with some very interesting presentations and we are trying to keep up in our own way with David Banes including our AI projects in his Master Class where he will also be mentioning a newly designed symbol set for AAC users in Cambodia.

International AAC Awareness month 'Say What' sharing memorable moments.

For International AAC Awareness month we have been sharing resources provided by those using and working with AAC on our Facecbook pages. However, as the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC) suggested the theme of “Say what? Sharing your most memorable moments with AAC.” we thought we would add two memorable moments Charlie Danger has had with the Dulabhatorn Foundation in Thailand and time working with 'Wheelchair For Special Disabled Children' in Kenya.
