Workshop: Reading and Understanding Tactile Graphics

Presented by Gerhard Jaworek

Students who study technical subjects are confronted with many diagrams. At the SZS, the graphics are either described textually or printed tactile. Thus, the students must be able to explore, read, interpret and understand tactile graphics.

This brief training program, based on graphics which are produced with the Tiger Embosser, is intended to teach how to explore simple technical graphics like pie charts, graphs within a coordinate system and circuit diagrams.

The course starts with simple exercises such as

  • detecting lines
  • finding the caption of a graphic
  • differentiating basic shapes and textures.
