We investigated the effectiveness of using a tablet-based app for communication with individuals with aphasia. We used the Promoting Aphasics' Communicative Effectiveness technique with 8 individuals with aphasia to compare factors such as the success rate of topic word communication and the required time between conventional communication methods (verbal, gestures, drawing, writing, etc.) and use of the tablet-based app alone. Results show that the app was effective in cases where both verbalization was difficult and few AAC methods such as drawing and gesturing were effective and in cases where yes–no responses were unclear due to auditory processing disorders.
