The challenge

Learning and working with graphic information is associated with great effort for people with visual disabilities. Without the help of others, graphic content cannot be accessed, is difficult to use and contains little non-visual information.

To overcome learning barriers with the Tactonom Reader

The innovative system provides access to graphic information supplemented by audio-tactile elements. This enables every user to work out even complex content independently, at their own speed and in a playful way.
