The Language of Lines: The Design and Use of Tactile Graphics
In addition to braille and computer literacy, students need a firm foundation in tactile literacy.There is a great need for a general tactile literacy curriculum with supporting tactile graphics training materials. We will cover what works and what does not with tactile graphics, and briefly talk about how to read, comprehend, and create graphical information using the language of lines. We will show good and bad examples, and introduce participants to resources where they can learn more.
