Talkaboutaac.org.uk exists to support people with additional needs discuss and share ideas and thoughts with other people who use AAC. We are committed to making our own website usable by all people, whatever their abilities or disabilities.
Find the right assistive technology to customise this site to your needs:
While the site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people are likely to get the most accessible experience of using this site by customising their computer to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.
If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit BBC My Web, My Way to watch videos of how these customisations – either using accessibility features of your computer or through installing assistive technologies – might suit you.

Limitations of this site’s accessibility
While we’ve done a lot to ensure this site’s accessibility, you may find some limitations:
· while we always aim to communicate clearly and as simply as possible, the majority of the content is user generated and out of our control
· while the site has been created using an accessible WordPress theme with additional support from accessibility plugins, the site has not been fully user-tested with disabled people – this is expected before the end of September 2015 as the user base of the website grows
· Let us know if you have difficulties using this site
If you find anything on the site difficult to use please let us know on our contact form using ‘talkaboutaac.org.uk site problem report’ as the subject.
To help us get to the bottom of your difficulty, it would help us if you provide the information advised in ‘Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites’ in your request.
All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of this website is welcome and will be carefully considered for future development.
