TactileView – DBT beta test and CTEBVI conference

As we already announced in our previous newsletter, the upcoming version of TactileView will introduce integration with the Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT). This powerful solution combines the best of both worlds: accurate braille texts with elegant tactile graphics.

We invite you to join the Beta test for DBT 11.3 Beta and TactileView (version 2.180 or higher). Visit the DBT beta page to register and find out all about inserting TactileView graphics on our beta page.

CircleFrame and GraphGrid – Increase the TactiPad’s drawing potential

Along with the TactiPad GraphGrid that we showed previously, we have also developed the TactiPad CircleFrame, which together form a set of intuitive TactiPad accessories. Both add-ons increase the easiness with which you can make a tactile drawing on the TactiPad and open up an even wider range of highly accurate and wonderfully creative drawings. In this weblog you will find a short overview of the added possibilities that these accessories can provide for education, professional and home use.

TactileView – Sight City = Sight Seeing

On coming Wednesday may 23th the annual exhibition Sight City is opening its doors again.

The exhibition takes place in Frankfurt Flughafen in the Sheraton hotel. The ‘city’ is really full of booths where you can find a wide variety of products and services that have something to do with ‘sight’. ‘Seeing’ them all in one day is nearly impossible, but if you would just see the half of them, your ‘sight’ could be cleared.

Jaap Breider will give a speech on Wednesday from 12:15 to 12:45 in the forum about the challenges that are encountered in the process of creating tactile diagrams.

TactileView will be present during the 3 days in booth H11. We will demonstrate the TactileView software, the TactiPad drawing board, the TactileView ClickPad and the first version of the TactileScope.

When you make it to Frankfurt, please visit us in booth H11.

In case you are not able to come by, we sent you the brochure that we have prepared.

The brochure we hand out is as article available at TactileView – A wealth of tactile images for a visual impaired person
