Future of Human Communication 

The Centre of Excellence for the Future of Human Communication (FHC) is dedicated to developing digital technologies that will help people to communicate better.

Its researchers are working on accessible devices and systems to improve healthcare and wellbeing, and enhance the way we learn, work and consume entertainment and culture.

Their human-centred approach - putting users at the heart of the design - aims to make digital communications more accessible, particularly for people with complex communication disorders such as deafness, speech impairments and autism.
