The User Centre
The Dundee AAC Research Group works closely with users so they can have a true impact on research and implementation. We are the proud host of the User Centre, where a number of user groups meet regularly here in Computing. Three special user groups are currently associated with the User Centre. These user groups work with DAAC in research and teaching.
Tap & Talk Aphasia iPad Group
The Tap and Talk Aphasia iPad Group was established by members of the local Speakeasy group together with the Speech and Language Therapy adult service of the NHS Tayside to help adults with aphasia in using an iPad to support their communication. Find out more on our project page: aac.dundee.ac.uk/tap-and-talk
Straight Talking Group
The Straight Talking Group is a user group of adults with complex disabilities who use a range of Augmentative and Alternative Communication. Learn more, and meet the team, on our Straight Talking Group page: aac.dundee.ac.uk/stg
Bytes and Blether – Over 50’s Computer and Coffee Club
Bytes and Blether (formerly the User Group or the Drop-in Centre) was established in 2005 when Computing moved into its new home, the Queen Mother Building. A dedicated space on the ground floor was part of the design of our new building to enable user groups, like Bytes and Blether, to meet regular in a space that supports the collaboration of user groups, teaching and research in Computing at Dundee University.
