Person reading a book

Our contribution “Enabling text comprehensibility assessment for people with intellectual disabilities using a mobile application” was published under the Frontiers research topic Digital Participation and Communication Disorders across the Lifespan. The paper presents a mobile application that can be used to test how well texts are understood by readers with or without intellectual disabilities. This was a collaboration with researchers from the University of Teacher Education in Special Needs (HfH) and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
