Dynamic display augmentative communication refers to a device or software that displays vocabulary as text and/or graphics on a screen and is able to be changed to another set of text and/or graphics electronically.

This term is used to contrast with traditional augmentative communication displays that use ̉staticÓ or paper overlays to display vocabulary. With static displays, the overlay of text and/or graphics must be changed manually.

Both types of devices usually provide voice-output to speak for the user when a vocabulary item is selected. Vocabulary may be selected in a number of ways from direct pointing to scanning with a switch.
