A word board or communications board is a simple means to help people who have lost the ability to speak. A word board may typically be provided to those recovering after a stroke.[1] To communicate, the user points at the relevant words, letters or symbols on the board. Typically the following are included:


Yes |No | () | |Want| That

ABCD EFG

HIJK LMNOP

QRS X TUV

& WX  ? YZ

Why|What|When|Where


There are now sophisticated electronic speech synthesis devices available for this purpose.
