A new communication device does not build vocabulary

This is an essay I wrote for ACOLUG, a mailing list for Alternative & Augmentative Communication (AAC). Augmentative Communication to describe quickly is the field of studying how people use language through means other than their voices or Sign Language. People who use Augmentative Communication, called Augmentative Communicators, typically use speech generatiing devices or manual communication boards. We as Augmentative Communicators typically has some physical limitations along with the inability to express ourselves clearly through speech.
