In this paper, we describe the iterative design and evaluation of a storytelling application for individuals with expressive aphasia. Our user studies show that besides basic requirements for medical care and training, there is an unmet need of aphasics to share their daily experiences and activities, anecdotes and feelings with their significant others. Thus, the goal of the proposed design is to enhance aphasics’ quality of life by providing a platform for them to create and share their stories. More specifically, the goal is to enable them to play a more active role in social exchanges by providing them with a multimodal interface for storytelling that has the following functionalities: taking photos, making drawings and annotations, and recording sounds. In the end of this paper, we also summarize important design guidelines that surfaced during the course of this project and that are potentially relevant for other designers and researchers working with aphasics.
