A number of research projects underway within the AAC-RERC focus on learning more about the performance and usability of AAC technologies. Researchers at the University at Buffalo are conducting a series of studies and have developed a performance-monitoring tool (ACQUA). In addition, studies are underway that specifically address performance/usability issues related to scanning and speech recognition. Finally, in a consumer-led research project, Pennsylvania State worked with two primary and one secondary consumer to investigate issues related to learning AAC technologies.
