AraWord: Free text processor with ARASAAC pictograms
Written by: Administrador Portal  the 2011-12-29 13:38:31

 

Here is the first version of an extraordinary tool developed by Joaquín Pérez Marco, under the supervision of Joaquín Ezpeleta Mateo (Computering and Systems Engineering Department of the Superior Polytechnic Center of the University of Zaragoza) and the collaboration of professionals from Alborada Special Education CenterARASAAC and the Aragonese Center of Technologies for the Education (CATEDU).

The program includes the database of ARASAAC’s pictograms and it allows the simultaneous writing with text and pictograms, thus facilitating the elaboration of materials and the adaptation of texts for people with communicative limitations.

In this first version, the application is translated to English, French, Catalan, Italian, German, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese both in the general menus and in the pictograms that will be used in the document.
