Large format refreshable tactile displays, to the extent that they exist, are traditionally far too costly for the individuals that need them most. In this project we are exploring the use of 3D printing and low cost electronics to build modular refreshable displays that communicate digital information tactilely for people with visual impairment.
Establishing new multimodal ways to interact with computers will lower the barrier to digital access for people with a range of visual impairments.
