Abstract:

  • With the advent of artificial intelligence and its applications to all aspects of daily life, an old saying that a pictures is worth of a thousand words will indeed have a broader and deeper impact on human quality of life, especially to those who have lost partial or total ability to articulate ideas in any form. How can people with aphasics acquire language skills? If aphasics do not process either partial or total ability to verbalize their ideas in words, how can hey study language? Language is generally defined as the aspect of human behaviour that involves the use of vocal sounds in meaningful patterns and, when they exist, corresponding with written symbols to form, express, and communicate thoughts and feelings. In this paper, we have focused our research on the picture cards for current computer-based therapy. On the basis of data used and collected, we began with an assumption that pre-conditions of digital picture cards were the essential step to the development of the language training software for aphasics. We proceeded to explore the impact of the visual information design of digital picture cards on those who have varying degrees of aphasia.
