Recently on one of the assistive technology list serves (QIAT to be specific) there was a series of messages about sun washout on AAC device screens. The determination of the contributers seemed to be that though current devices are better at preventing glare/sun washout no device is actually "good" at preventing it. In that end FRS offers a screen that attached to devices to stop the glare and improve communication outdoors. Seems to me it might work well if you carry the device, but it might seem like communicating in a tent for wheelchair users with the device on a mount, still for those AAC users with an active outdoor life it is a great solution.
