Tactile Graphics

Tactile Graphics are referred to set of images that are used by visually impaired to feel the images, maps, graphs, paintings, and diagrams through raised surfaces. It falls under the umbrella of accessible images and it is most commonly used for producing tactile maps. AEL Data has been producing Tactile Graphics for several years to many European NPOs and libraries in compliance with the BANA (Braille Authority of North America) guidelines and standards.

Our Tactile Graphics development team has streamlined the tactile image translation process to produce graphics in the most efficient way. This means, with the right tools, producing images that are inexpensive, quick, and easily customisable. Our team of Tactile Graphics professionals separates text from an image so that the text can later be replaced by Braille and inserted back onto the image. In order to streamline the text selection process, we also employ machine learning to recognize text so that large groups (possibly hundreds) of images can be translated at a time.

We are producing volumes of tactile images for the subjects:

  • Biology
  • Maths
  • Physics
  • Chemistry and
  • Maps
