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