Keyguards in AAC

For some people with motor difficulties, it could be difficult interacting with a communication device. They can have difficulties targetting the key they want to select and need some support to avoid hitting another button by mistake.

What is a keyguard?

A keyguard is a layer made of hard plastic perforated with holes for the keys on the screen. It is placed on top of the screen and fills up the spaces between the keys. This helps prevents the user from unintentionally pressing multiple keys.
