Dear Lisa

I am so sorry not to have caught up with this discussion about new media type…  so if what follows is irrelevant please forget it!

What you say is a real occurrence for some individuals with certain types of communication difficulties but possibly it would help to highlight the type of disorder that may cause the person to be confused for example a comprehension difficulty related to aphasia or some individuals on the autistic spectrum or with intellectual impairments.

I feel it is important to ensure people understand the difficulties you mention, but it might not be applicable to all individuals who are non-verbal say due to physical or expressive language difficulties and those with articulation or dysarthric speech etc where they can respond appropriately to the nuances of gesture and spoken language.

I know these are sweeping statements about certain communication disorders, so please forgive me if it all sounds rather awkward, but hopefully you know what I mean.

Best wishes

Subject: example use case for new media type

Hi folks

Following our debate on media type I have an addition to use case:

Someone with a communication disorder is unlikely to notice implied content, such as body language, implied tone and cues. For example, they may not know that a character or speech is intended to be sarcastic, threatening, tense, or lighthearted.  Meteors and implications are often missed.
It is worth noting that they maybe slower at processing words, so providing them with more information then they need may make the cognitive overload too much. Having implied content  in a separate track with a designated type may be very useful.

All the best
