Designing Audio-Tutorial Map Systems for Blind Children: A Report of Collaborative Research and Development.
Miller, Jack W.
Low vision students can be helped to gain an understanding of map reading and geography by means of products developed by the American Printing House for the Blind. Among those products are a series of eight land form models with accompanying audiotapes, a series of continental color coded relief maps, and 18 audiotapes for the six continents. The audiotapes, which address such topics as general map exploration, countries in each continent, major cities, and historical facts, combine entertainment with the cognitive material, and are designed for students in grades 5 through 10.
