Our Tactile diagrams service

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.
