An excellent article by Chancey Fleet was brought to my attention after I published a recent post.

Tactile Drawing and Spatial Thinking.

Chancey Fleet describes image poverty as the lack of tactile graphics. Read her excellent article, linked below. She discusses:

•            Attitudinal and bureaucratic barriers that limit the availability of tactile graphics.

•            The assumption that images will be experienced visually.

•            Differences in scale of visual and tactile design

•            Examples of tactile graphics used in everyday situations

•            Techniques for making tactile graphics.

•            Nonvisual methods of tactile design

•            The importance of community-building to develop best practices in tactile design.
