As a way of celebrating the Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) we are putting up some early examples of the sort of resources we want to share with you in the coming months. Global Accessibility Awareness Day is one to celebrate as many people around the world raise awareness about the difficulties some people have being able to use digital technologies if we do not take care to make them easy to use. Companies and organisations as well as individuals have been tweeting about the day as well as providing links to workshops, webinars and other resources all for free.
The Tawasol symbol resources are also free to share under a Creative Commons licence and you can download them from the Tawasol symbol website. You will need to log in if you have not visited our website in the past but that is just so that we can see whether the resources we are developing are being downloaded – no personal data is collected unless you want to get in touch with us.
You may see some ARASAAC symbols included in our resources, as we do not intend to make a completely new set of symbols, but to complement others already in existence.
Please do suggest some AAC symbol resources you would like to see and hopefully we can help you by making them both in English and in Arabic.
We have added our initial vocabulary list so that you can see both languages and the parts of speech that we have used as the lexical concepts.
If you are not happy with any of the words used as labels when you go to download our symbols, any label can be changed or additional labels added to suit Your needs by using the Symbol Creator app. Other changes can also be made to the symbols and the new symbol with its label can be downloaded in several different formats.
