Visually impaired youngsters that are in the procedure for building a comprehension of their world regularly learn through guided tactile education and stimulus including tactile images.
The shortage of readily reproducible and customizable tactile graphics in the visually impaired community visits an educational challenge wherein teachers of the visually impaired (TVIs) must use labor intensive, time consuming means to build significant tactile experiences for their pupils.
These layouts expect to take advantage of 3D printing technology to create readily customizable and printable tactile graphics. Feel free to change & customize!
All versions were designed on CraftML, an XML-style markup language for 3D modeling that features support for Braille text.
