Everything you need to create and edit tactile graphics


The inTACT Drawing Bundle includes everything blind or low vision users need to independently create their own tactile graphics. With the inTACT Sketchpad, freehand tactile drawing has never been easier. The inTACT Eraser makes it possible to erase and revise tactile lines by flattening them to the touch.

inTACT Sketchpad and Eraser for Tactile Graphics

Learn to draw. Draw to learn.


From an early age, sighted kids are coloring; from scribbles to shapes to sine waves, students learn and grow through drawing at every stage of their education. Now, with inTACT products, blind or low-vision children can learn and grow by interacting with tactile drawing in the same way. A blind kid doodling on an inTACT Sketchpad today is a student who’s ready for tomorrow.

Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics.

As engineers, we understand the importance of being able to communicate graphically – to create and understand drawings, diagrams or figures. This skill is particularly important for success in STEM fields. To build this skill set, students need to have access to interactive curricula – content that not only reinforces their learning, but also allows them to practice and use graphical communication.

Access to STEM. Access to Opportunity.

intact and pearson publishing working together

EASY is working with Pearson, the largest educational publisher in the world, to make accessible graphics workbooks for Blind and Low Vision students. Starting with elementary mathematics, we will work together to bring unprecedented access to interactive learning materials for blind students. We hope that this partnership will revolutionize learning opportunities for these students, and make access to STEM learning easier than ever before. More information coming soon.

 


“If we get these tools into the hands of blind kids and we let them use their own creativity to dream, to imagine, to conceptualize the world…they’re going to be, to some extent, years ahead of where blind scientists and engineers are today.”

“After all, as blind people, we learn by touching, and the inTACT Sketchpad give us that perfect opportunity.” Joann Becker

inTACT Year in review 2014

What a perfect time and place to be writing this blog. 5:00 AM on January first. So quiet. The loudest sound is the clock ticking in the kitchen. Here in the living room, the Christmas tree is still looking robust and proud of itself. The strings of lights are unplugged but each of the fifty or so ornaments shines with its own unique significance. Oddly, these treasures include five old Thanksgiving turkey wishbones somehow saved in the box of Christmas decorations. Perfect! It’s a tree of metaphor – celebration, gratitude, memory, pride and continuation. It helps me arrange my inTACT reflections from 2014. There’s so much to celebrate. A stranger returning to our space after a year’s absence would be struck by one big change (not just one hundred square feet of new office space. ). Products! A year ago, most conversations with consumers felt like this. Them: “When?” Us: “Soon”. Now the shelves are loaded to capacity with labeled boxes of parts and materials and an inventory of inTACT Sketchpads and Erasers and packages of drawing sheets ready to ship. These past s many months the conversations have felt more like this: Customer: “We’d like to order”. Us: “How many?” Customer: “two of each”. Us: “We’ll ship Tuesday”. So much to be grateful for, most of all the blind individuals and organizations – maybe a hundred for each of the twelve days of Christmas – who confirmed with their words and their purchases that the need and the drive to draw is not limited to people with sight. So many parents and teachers to thank for deciding that... read more
