AAC devices currently in common use have a limited number of different voices available and these are not natural sounding of easily able to express emotions; this can be a reason for some people who might benefit choosing not to use them.

People who have aphasia often use a combination of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) strategies to support their interactions.

This paper aimed to gather an overall perspective on high-tech device use in this population through gathering information from professionals working with them. The information was gathered via a web-based survey of professionals, observation of group therapy sessions and focus groups of clinicians from the group therapy centres.
