The first Tactile Reading conference. For practitioners and academics.

The conference Tactile Reading 2017 will bring together people working with children and youth with visual impairments and blindness, academics in various research areas, commercial companies, developers and innovators in the field of tactile reading.

The conference is arranged by Swedish Agency for Accessible Media (MTM) and National Agency for Special Needs Education and Schools (SPSM). Our aim is to create a forum to share experiences and research, promote best practices and inspire to new ideas for research and get people together for future collaboration.

This is the first time this conference is arranged. We have the ambition to create a recurrent international conference on issues related to tactile reading, including literacy, with a conference organization touring between European interested parties.

Welcome to Stockholm and Tactile Reading in April 2017!
