The purpose of this study, which is part of the ARC project “A Pictorial Communication Framework for Inclusion“, is to explore the design of applications that would allow people to easily access images and use them as they see fit, for example, to place them in any arrangement on a digital canvas.
Through this study, we also seek to understand which types of pictures should be offered, for example, emojis, photographs, or a combination, as well as a variety of arrangements for images to be explored (in categories, or on a grid).
We will be observing how using the pictures may become a tool for self-expressing, or conducting a conversation, for people with intellectual disability who wish to use images to communicate.
