Effective Tactiles

Communicating through tactile drawings, graphics, maps and more

Wednesday, January 25, 02:00-04:00 p.m.

Are you an employer trying to determine how best to communicate information contained in charts, on maps, and other images to your blind colleagues? Are you a blind person who wants to easily access information that your sighted colleagues see on a daily basis? An image must be viewed in terms of the contextual material, but how do you determine what that is? Conveying and accessing this information non-visually is often easier than it seems. Is a picture really worth a thousand words?

If you are interested in attending any of these boutiques, please RSVP to [email protected]. Space is limited.

The boutiques will be held at the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute, 200 East Wells Street at Jernigan Place, Baltimore, Maryland 21230. Please note that webinar format is not offered at this time.
