The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu A sentence should be generated by a minimum amount of navigation of the system refers to the intuitiveness of the system. Issue: Intuitiveness of the system. Solution: Providing suggestions and auto completion for sentences 9
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu An assistive person is one that is either a disabled person or a non-disabled person with whom the user wants/needs to communicate. Issue: Single language? More than one assistive person? Solution: English 10
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu Functional Requirement Issues Giving a specific meaning to each picture to reduce the ambiguity, as a picture can be worth a thousand words and a thousand interpretations. Provide default representation (text, audio, pictures, categories) to vocabulary items to reduce the ambiguity. Issue: The default representation ? Solution: Text to Speech 11
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu The system needs to display a previously generated sentence without regeneration. if it is present in the frequently used sentences. Issue: How? And what way? Solution: Favorites, 30 most recent, situational sentences 12
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu Integrating already available technologies like alarm clock in a meaningful manner. Issue: Meaningful manner? What other technologies? Solution: Calendars, reminders, picture to audio using camera. 13
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu New sentence generation should be done as dynamically and with as much flexibility as possible Issue: Dynamic and flexibility is vague and not clearly defined Solution: dynamic sentence generation, auto fill options, re-ordering of sentences. Flexibility by customization, select noun, verbs etc. 14
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu The system should be quick to understand(the learning time should be very low) and very easy to use. Issue: Typically old people are not good at working with latest electronics like smart phones. Solution: Use large, colorful, self explanatory icons. Also only a maximum of 6 large icons will be shown on the screen. 15
The University of Texas at Dallasutdallas.edu 16 The system should be customizable to every user in the context of making sense of an visual clue as the user wants, how he/she wants to view the clues and what speech should be generated (if the user wants to generate it Issue : " as the user wants" and "how he/she wants to view " Solution: 1.Customization a.
