Definition: Tactile Graphics
Tactile graphics translate images into tactile language.
They allow people access to the visual information in works of art, maps, architectural and other diagrams, and three-dimensional objects and spaces.
In the Resources section you will find organizations, companies, and institutions that research and create tactile graphics, tactile graphics equipment producers, and supplies for tactile images. There are also groups that provide support services in using and training with these tactile resources.
