Touch Graphics, Inc. creates tactile graphic books that are of unparalleled quality. These books, made to order for art museums and other organizations, include raised-line and textured representations of paintings, photographs and other visual materials. The tactile images employ a variety of effects to promote good comprehension; depth effects are achieved by varying the height of relief of raised lines, and texture fills help improve awareness of figure-ground distinctions. The pictures are also color-printed, so that a partially-sighted viewer can use a combination of vision and touch sense while reading the book. Books include verbal descriptions that explain the content of the images and orient the reader for efficient tactile examination; this text appears in both Braille and large print.
