At A2i we strive to make your whole document accessible – this includes transcribing visual information such as graphs, charts, pictures and maps. Tactile diagrams translate a visual image into a tactile one. They use raised surfaces so blind and visually impaired people can feel them.

When we translate your document into alternative formats, we consider the reader and the information they need. Some diagrams are best transcribed with a full description, sometimes a tactile version of the diagram is appropriate.

Let us help you with your project

The process is simple: just send us a copy of your document, we'll take a look and tell you what your options are. We'll do all the specialist work, translating your graphs, diagrams, maps or images into tactile format. Our turnaround time is usually just 3 working days. Get in touch if you have any questions.
