While researching a poem, I found this page about the Holocaust.  Scroll down, and below the main article in brown there is a little red box with a thumbnail summary including illustrative icons.  If you just read the highlighted keywords and their icons, you get "holocaust, systematic, state-sponsored, six million Jews, Nazi."  That's a brilliant nutshell for people who may not be verbal or fluent in English.  While I rarely see it in local-America outside of resources designed for people with special needs, it's quite common in Terramagne, although it usually appears above the main article to serve as a quick introduction.

Cool! Too bad DW won't let you do that.... it would be... tricksy to implement, but if you were designing a system from scratch...

I wonder if [personal profile] mdlbear knows any UX (sorry, that's User eXperience) designers... he's a dev, but strictly backend.

That would be Augmentative and Alternative Communication, not any of the other "AAC"s that turned up in a research.
