This paper examines new systems of representing the meaning of words and sentences using visual representations to the specially challenged people. One of the systems is "Shikshak" that can be used to provide personalized education to people having special needs. Moreover, for people with Severe Speech and Motor Impairments, "Sanyog" is developed. Sanyog is a speech enabled vernacular Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) system that helps an SSMI affected user to perform daily communication in a natural way. Another system that is discussed in this paper is "Sweepstick", which is an alternative mechanism to access computer by severely disabled users.
