Home > AAC Text Donation Study

You can help improve future AAC interfaces by donating sentences from your history

We are collecting sentences written by users of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) interfaces. These sentences will be used to help improve AAC text entry interfaces. Contributed sentences will become part of a public data set. This data set will be available for download by researchers working to improve AAC text entry interfaces.

Participant requirements:


You will need to install our custom application on your computer. The application runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. You will point the application at a text file of things you have written using your AAC interface. You can then select whatever sentences you would like to share with the project. You can read more about our data collection and privacy policies here.

If you would like to volunteer to take part, or to find out more, please contact Keith Vertanen at [email protected]
