The BBC reports that scientists claim to have developed the first technology of its kind to allow children with communication problems to converse better.
‘How was school today?’ is software to help children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy communicate faster.
The system is the result of a project between computing scientists from the Universities of Aberdeen and Dundee, and Capability Scotland.
Plans are in place to examine how it could be used to support children with different levels and types of impairments.
The project was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
