Tactonom Reader


Understanding graphics with the sense of touch is a major challenge for blind and severely visually impaired people. That’s why they usually rely on the help of sighted people.

For this reason, very few tactile learning graphics are used in education: While sighted people learn with around 25,000 graphics in school, blind people use less than 100!

The Tactonom Reader solves both challenges: The Tactonom Reader enables independent learning. We cooperate with ProBlind. Thousands of tactile graphics are available for free in the “Share” database.

Improved learning opportunities with the Tactonom Reader

The Tactonom Reader enables visually impaired people to learn with the same content as sighted people. The camera detects the position of the finger and the system explains what you feel under your fingertips.

With the Tactonom Reader, blind and severely visually impaired people do not need help from others and can participate in lessons on an equal basis. It is now also possible to deepen what you have learned independently and at your own pace.
