makers of a variety of Braille embossers and software. Check out their products at www.ViewPlus.com
* Tangible Surface Research
Manufactures tactile markers for those pesky flat screen appliances in your kitchen. These are more than just dots and are not printed in braille. Instead they offer tactile shapes that clearly mark a universal representation of the standard buttons on those devices, such as a right triangle for Start, and an X for Stop or Cancel. Owner, Ann deWitt, describes how these are more functional than dots and braille, and she’ll also make tactile overlays for exercise equipment and virtually anything you might wish to special order.
