<_BetsyFurler_> I think no hyphen

Lisa do we prefer short term with or without hyphen.

<_BetsyFurler_> Two words. Short term.

ea: US is probably using hyphen, UK without

<Jennie> And, depending on verbosity settings of a text to speech tool, it may interrupt hearing the word without the punctuation

Readability Guidelines say only use a hyphen if it helps make more readable

<AbiJ> +1 no hyphen

agree no hyphen

<AbiJ> Sentence is - "For example, a symbol user wants to send a message to their doctor. They can press the login with the icon they know and send a message."

Lisa how about "symbol and AAC"

<EA> +1 to what Jennie says

<EA> Easyreading.eu project supplies symbols to aid comprehension

<LisaSeemanKest> symbol user - people who use symbols to help understanding

EA: agree are more uses of symbols other than AAC but understand Abi's POV

Jeni: AAC is for use for communication and also some people use symbols to create input

lisa: the context is provide "provide an alternative log in that does not use a lot of words"

abi: if we have problems defining symbols user we need to review it.

jennie: agree. Plus symbols might be on the page or elsewhere

<EA> This is why icons and symbols need to be considered as different things

<AbiJ> +1

<LisaSeemanKest> symbol user removed. replace with someone with a launge disability or aac user as relivent

Lisa: "symbols user" is to be replaced with "someone with a language disability or AAC user"

ea: problem with AAC is people do not understand what it means. Also symbols is used for various things

<Jennie> And designers may also use symbols and icons differently

Lisa: I mean we replace "symbols user" with approriate language forthe case
... we have an editors call next
