Partner Story

Tactopus was founded by Chandni R and Saloni Mehta, designers from IIT Bombay. It builds engaging, multisensory learning experiences and strengthens the learning ecosystem for blind children, enables them to learn better and reach their full potential.

How do blind children learn?

How do blind children learn about science and math, if they only have access to braille (text) and audio? Even simple concepts like the water cycle or complex diagrams like the combustion engine require a minimum amount of visual imagery, which blind people have minimal access to, making their education severely stunted. This lack of access, compounded across years of education, effectively excludes blind people from several fields of employment and livelihood.

Tactopus works on this precise problem, by creating tactile graphics: images that are embossed and textured, so they can be read by the fingertips. They also have an interactive audio companion through a smartphone app, that makes it possible for blind children to learn independently. 

After several months of conversations with stakeholders including blind children, blind adults, parents, teachers, special educators, and education policy makers, the Tactopus team understood that these factors are important for blind education:

  1. access to same information as sighted peers, including visual content.
  2. raised expectations and learning goals, recognising higher potential.
  3. formalising higher quality testing methods for tactile/visual content.
  4. ability to learn without assistance, independently

Using this information, they create resources based on concepts that teachers think are most important, and cannot be taught without the help of tactile imagery. Frequent testing with blind children is part of their design process.
