Great Guardian article on AAC

My brother Luke flagged this Guardian article up to me this morning, and I must say it's the most impressive piece of press I've come across about AAC in a long time. The world of communication aid use doesn't seem to get that much coverage in the mainstream, but this piece is pretty comprehensive. It's about VocaliD, an organisation which tailors voices to specific AAC users. To explain why such work is so important, the writer, Jordan Kisner, outlines and explores many of the issues we communication aid users face, from all sounding the same to having an American accent when one is British. It's a sound, ssubstantial piece of writing - if quite a long one - and well worth a read. More to the point, it's good to see the issues guys like me face articulated so well.
