Edutactile - A Tool for Rapid Generation of Accurate Guideline-Compliant Tactile Graphics for Science and Mathematics

Abstract

In this paper the authors have presented the design and implementation of Edutactile, a crossplatform software which automates the process of creation of tactile diagrams. Edutactile provides for automated application of guidelines or presets as well as Braille translation and thus abstracts away the production related issues. This relieves special educators for the visually challenged from having to learn the workings of the graphics editing software (Photoshop, CorelDraw) which are currently being used to produced tactile graphics and instead focus on the content of the diagram.
