Tactile Images is creating embossed images used by the blind for visual & spatial aid.

We started creating images for visually impaired people in 2011. First, we did them in plastic, with Braille books explaining the images and giving biographic and historical context. Right now we are making them compatible with swell paper so you can print them yourself or order prints from us. We also encourage using DIY embossing techniques (scroll down to learn how). Starting this Autumn we will have our own app. Touching AI will open up a new educational & technical revolution for visually impaired people. Scroll down to learn more about the first app that lets visually impaired people learn by themselves whatever they want with the aid of tactile slides.
