Sc@ut Communicators are augmentative and alternative communication systems (AAC) that help people with communication problems. These communicators are currently being used by autistic children in their education and also in their everyday life. The communicator uses hypermedia templates with sounds and pictures that improve learning. In addition, the educators require us to develop a system with greater autonomy; they need can configure the communicator for each child and reconfigure it when the child progresses. In order to satisfy them, the Sc@ut Communicators may be adapted to each individual and evolve with it.
