This paper describes the long-term evaluation of the TINATELSystem, an Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) device to be used for aided communication within the public telephone network. The system was especially developed for a single speech impaired User. An integrated logbook recorded a lot of data between 1991 and 1994 concerning the daily use of the system. These data are described and shown in different ways to keep in view the transferrate, the average daily duration of use, the social and therapeutical effects and so on. Some general aspects of protocolling data by an AAC system are shown. It is stated that these data can contribute valuable parts to the evaluation of AACdevices.
