Abstract: The challenges faced by people who are severely physically impaired and nonspeaking are
demonstrated by the fact that, even with current technology, the word rates that they can achieve using current
communication systems tend to range from two to ten words per minute. Ways have been investigated in which
prestored reusable texts might assist in improving the performance of such systems. Beginning with a study of
the acceptability and effects of including prestored texts in a conversation, this investigation examined a series of
methods of increasing complexity that had the system itself perform some of the cognitive and manipulative
tasks required to locate suitable texts for a user to include in conversation. These methods have included logging
