Communication Matters 2022

We’re excited to announce that Smartbox will be at The Communication Matters International AAC Conference taking place from 11 – 13 September at the University of Leeds. Communication Matters is the UK’s leading annual AAC industry event where you can find out the latest developments in AAC technology and research in a diverse programme of keynotes, plenaries, presentations, posters and talks from AAC supplier companies.

What can you expect from us?

Our team will be sharing the latest developments for eye gaze users in Grid, including innovation in cameras, new accessible apps and a sneak peek of some new software. We’ll also be covering how we’re taking on the challenge of providing AAC users with a unique voice, and more about getting the most out of your headtracking devices.

Visit us at our stand to view our product range and find out everything you want to know about Smartbox and Grid from our AAC specialists.

Since last time…

Smartbox is proud to support AAC users and we are dedicated to constantly improving AAC to positively impact the quality of life for disabled people.

So much has happened since last year’s conference, we’ve helped to give even more people around the world a voice by providing our software and vocabularies in more languages. This includes Voco Chat, a research-based vocabulary which uses a pragmatic approach to make communication easier. Voco Chat is available in 17 languages.

In May this year, we introduced personalised voices on Grid for iPad, helping users to communicate in a voice that better reflects their individuality and identity.

We have continued to develop Lumin-i, our very own eye tracker, which offers robust and reliable tracking both indoors and outdoors.

New, accessible versions of apps such as Netflix, Microsoft Outlook and Instagram have been released meaning that everyone can connect with the online world.

As a Gold Sponsor of the event, we will be presenting 3 supplier talks, in addition to this, a number of Smartboxers are participating in the main conference. Stay in touch via the Facebook community to get all the details on our talks and speakers.
