Sharpen Your Skills: Tactile Graphics. Tactile Illustrating.
Epstein, Betty
National Braille Association Bulletin, v19 n3,4 Fall 1983 Win 1984
Two short articles about tactile illustrating are presented for braille transcribers and teachers of the visually handicapped. Focusing on tactile graphics, the first article discusses the conversion of significant print graphic information to the clearest, most factually legible form possible. Tips for achieving factual legibility and the preservation of embossed masters are offered. The second article provides information on the appropriate use of three-dimensional representation. The article tries to suggest a compromise between those who flatly state that all three-dimensional graphics should be omitted from transcriptions and those who insist that print text should be exactly converted into braille text.
