Tactile vision with Elevated Printing
There is a whole world between being able to see every detail and being blind. There is also a whole world between a printed document and braille. Educational books are full of illustrations, schemes and graphs that really support the understanding of the matter. How to visualize these complex illustrations for visually impaired people?
This can be done by using the patented Elevated Printing technology from Océ, supported by the in-depth knowledge from Dedicon about how visually impaired people can ‘read’ with their finger tips. Applications are developed that help visually impaired people to better understand education books, to better find their way in a crowded railway station and they even help to let people enjoy fine art by being able to touch the very detailed brush strokes on a reproduced oil painting.
