Talking Tactile Pen TTP

Touch Graphics Europe designs and produces audio tactile images based on the smart pen technology.

The tactile Talking Pen (TTP) acts as a tool to explore the audio messages that are assigned to the different parts of a tactile image. Used in conjunction with the tactile exploration, the TTP provides information in audio format to extend the information for each part.

The development of this project, led by Touch Graphics Inc. and the Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, was funded by a grant from the SBIR program of the United States Department of Education.
