T3 - Talking Tactile Technology from RNCB

Name Royal National College for the Blind
Sector Education - Accessibility Services
Service Description We are selling and developing the American 'Talking Tactile Tablet' in the UK and Europe as the T3. A simple computer peripheral device for the visually impaired that consists of a touch screen in a table top device. Tactile sheets are embossed with raised lines and textures, to describe images, maps and diagrams. When tactile areas on the tactile surface are pressed, relevant audio information is given through a connected computer, thus a wide range of rich multimedia applications can be constructed. An authoring tool is built in which enables teachers (who may be visually impaired themselves) to produce a variety of talking tactiles in all subjects for all ages. RNC also sells ready-made talking tactile teaching materials designed to match the national curriculum from the website.
Access Available to All
Cost T3 plus software £600 - programs are around £10 each
