Background
26,65 millionen visually impaired people live in Europe out of which 2,65 millionen are blind.


The Problem
Blind people cannot access graphic information like tables, maps, diagrams, charts, graphics, floor plans, images, icons, websites and many more. Just because there are no suitable output technologies are available.

The Solution
The Tactonom enables blind people to access any information without the help of others. On its DIN A4-sized touch field – with more than 10.500 touch points – texts as well as any type of graphics can be displayed.

Our Vision
Within 10 years we strive to grant 10 % of blind people below the age of 65 years to successfully integrate the work space. By that token we hope to get 95.400 blind Europeans back into work.
