Tactile Graphics

Another useful service from Jymico. A tactile graphic is a unique representation of a non-textual information dedicated to people who are blind or visually impaired, and may include tactile illustrations of pictures, maps, graphs, diagrams, and other images. A braille user can feel the raised lines and surfaces in order to obtain the same information that people who are sighted get through looking at pictures or other visual images.

The Braille Code

Braille uses cells of six raised dots, in two columns of three dots. The dot positions on the left are numbered from one to three, the ones on the right from four to six, as shown in the picture.

A standard braille page is 11.5 inches by 11 inches and typically has between forty braille cells per line and twenty-five lines.

Logical Sequence

As first made by Louis Braille, the first group of characters, using just the top 4 dots of the braille cell, represents letters "a" through "j" (this group of ten characters is called a decade). Dot 3 (bottom left) is added to each of the "a" through "j" symbols to give letters "k" through "t".

Both of the bottom dots (dots 3 and 6) are added to the first decade to give letters "u", "v", "x", "y", and "z". The letter "w" is left out of this group because French did not use the letter "w" when Louis Braille made his alphabet. The fifth decade is the same as the first decade, but shifted down by a row (dots 1 and 4 are blank).

Comfortable with his surroundings, he rarely used a cane. Here is his advice to the parents: expect from a blind child what you expect from a sighted child.
Stevie Wonder image
Stevie Wonder Stevie Wonder (Stevland Hardaway Judkins), author, composer and performer, has won several awards for his music. He became blind in his early childhood. His first album, Little Stevie Wonder, was published at the age of eleven. He had a major influence on many musicians.
