How do blind children learn about science and math, if they only have access to braille (text) and audio? 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.
We work on this precise problem, by creating tactile graphics — images that are embossed and textured, so they can be read by the fingertips. We also have an interactive audio companion through a smartphone app, that makes it possible for blind children to learn independently.
