Adaptation for blind people

In this project I present the creation of a tactile adjustment for the needs of the Slovenian National Gallery for the blind and visually impaired. The portrait of Luiza Pesjakov by Mihael Stroj. Five different textures in different heights, ranging from 0,030 to 0,469 mm, were used to create tactile adjustment. We further compiled and examined the different associations the users had when feeling different textures. The obtained information helped us choose those textures that could best convey the individual elements of the actual image. The blind and visually impaired users of tactile images participating in our study were also very satisfied with the designed tactile image.
