*LOGO* Virtual Reality Lab



Projects in this lab are interested in exploring new metaphors for the organization and access of vocabulary based on the conceptual model of Language Space. The predominant metaphors that currently exist (e.g., levels) are largely based on the physical constraints of current augmentative communication systems. Language is often organized to "fit" into the display or keyboard of the device. As an alternative approach, we would like to consider technology that supports expanded language spaces as a means to provide more natural communication for individuals with severe communication impairments.
