Tactile images at the Royal National Institute for the Blind

This video if from the Source Photographic Review. In it, Sue King, Tactile Images and Maps Consultant at RNIB, explains how the RNIB's tactile photos work and the differences in how a sighted and visually impaired person is able to access and interact with a photo.

I had a long conversation with Sue on the phone today. By coincidence, the RNIB is currently working with the Sheffield Industrial Museum and Sheffield Station to create tactile graphics for them. She is very interested in helping with Clive's project to have an exhibition of photography that can be appreciated both by sighted and visually impaired people.

I have some very exciting news involving an Emmy-award-winning maker of documentaries but that must wait for tomorrow !
