Even simple concepts like the water cycle or complex diagrams like the combustion engine require a minimum amount of visual imagery, which blind people have minimal access to, making their education severely stunted. This lack of access, compounded across years of education, effectively excludes blind people from several fields of employment and livelihood.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eTactopus works on this precise problem, by creating tactile graphics: images that are embossed and textured, so they can be read by the fingertips. They also have an interactive audio companion through a smartphone app, that makes it possible for blind children to learn independently. \u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eAfter several months of conversations with stakeholders including blind children, blind adults, parents, teachers, special educators, and education policy makers, the Tactopus team understood that these factors are important for blind education:\u003c\/p\u003e\u003col\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eaccess to same information as sighted peers, including visual content.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eraised expectations and learning goals, recognising higher potential.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eformalising higher quality testing methods for tactile\/visual content.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eability to learn without assistance, independently\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ol\u003e\u003cp\u003eUsing this information, they create resources based on concepts that teachers think are most important, and cannot be taught without the help of tactile imagery. Frequent testing with blind children is part of their design process. \u003c\/p\u003e\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eYour Impact\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\u003cp\u003eThis product is designed after repeated testing with and feedback from special educators, parents, and blind children themselves. It thus keeps their learning needs in minds. It helps to introduce visually impaired children to tactile perception skills that are vital to their learning process. It thus helps to bridge the gap in access to learning and makes it easier for the child to catch up with her peers as they grow. The material is equally interesting to blind adults who have had little or no access to tactile material growing up.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWhy we like it\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\u003cp\u003eWhen we think of educational resources for children, there is a flood of choices in the form of illustrated books, activity books, smartphone and iPad applications. In comparison, accessible, inclusive and universally designed products that focus on the learning needs of the blind, are very few, especially in India. These resources by Tactopus ensure that every child, no matter what their disability, has access to relevant, high quality resources that work for them and improve learning outcomes while making learning enjoyable and interactive.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eMaya says\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\u003cp\u003eEnterprises like Tactopus play a critical role in bringing learning resources for the physically challenged out into the mainstream market, instead of limiting them to the special education section. This ensures that these resources are understood and appreciated by more people, and awareness of access to these resources increases.\u003c\/p\u003e"}
