WHO & WHY

The majority of blind and visually impaired children have Android mobile devices.
This is because of the lower cost of these devices, compared to iOS devices.

”I was first very intrigued by the idea being able to add audio descriptions right onto Tactile
images. We as a department very much encourage and produce a very high volume of Tactile graphics for our Blind and Visually impaired students. The tricky part is having enough room for everything without having it be too complex to be useful. I first made a Tactile layout for the Zoom interface and although it was a tricky interface the results were amazing and I was able to quickly use it with students as they were learning the spatial layout for this program.”

About the mobile assistant

Drawings with raised surfaces aka tactile graphics represent a popular means for children with visual impairments to discover the world around them.

THEN: Traditionally, reading a graphic requires a very intimate gesture: that of a teacher taking and guiding the hand of a child on a graphic while explaining what they are touching.

iOS assistant already available
