The purpose of this study was to develop a Korean web-based customized AAC board making system that is easily accessible and compatible across devices in Korean cultural/linguistic contexts. Potential users of this system are individuals with communication disorders and their parents/teachers. Board making users can make customized symbol boards using either built-in or customized symbols. The AAC users can access their own AAC page generated by personalized AAC page application using any devices only if they can access to a web-browser. We expect that this system plays a role for Korean AAC users to generate customized AAC boards on the web and to use the boards in meaningful environments to meet their unique communication needs.
