Tactile Wayfinding Maps for Visually Impaired

Moving independently and safely is essential for a better and full life for blind and visually impaired people.

One important way of gaining independence is undoubtedly information. Blind or visually impaired people, who have difficulty entering an unknown space, need precise and immediate information that can represent the place where they are and the services that it may offer.

Tactile maps are used to guide visually impaired and blind users in new surroundings like museums.

Tactile maps use raised points, lines, and textures to represent objects, identify rooms, and denote accessible areas.

Optical Magnifiers | Electronic Magnifiers | Computer Magnification | Mirrors and Lights

Before buying a magnifier it’s important to know the magnification strength you require and what you’ll be using it for. For example, a pocket magnifier is ideal for spot reading labels and price tags, whereas a stand magnifier is suitable for longer periods of reading. When using a traditional, non-electronic handheld optical magnifier the lens should be held close to the eye and the object should be brought into focus by moving it towards the lens.
