As creators of data visualization, it is important for us to remember that many of our platforms are not accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. What can we do to help non-sighted people access the wealth of information that we convey visually?
To discuss this topic we have on the show Steve Landau, the founder of Touch Graphics, a company that develops products that “rely on multi-sensory display techniques and audio-haptic interactivity.”
We talk with Steve about the history of the company, the process for creating tactile graphics, and his suggestions for making visualization more accessible.
Enjoy the show!
