Visual Communication

Visual Communication is a visual language system that enables a variety of non-verbal and non-signing users to communicate through an app.

Using the images and graphics common in today’s mainstream society, such as emojis, Visual Communication creates a simple, accessible vocabulary. Users can customise the app with their family and friends, creating the flexibility for the more advanced functions of language such a metaphor. The Visual Communication system establishes meaningful connections between verbal and non-verbal communicators, reducing the barriers to conversation.
