Our Vision

With the Tactonom we aim to enable 10% of blind persons under the age of 65 in Europe (954,000 persons) to have access to well-paid and rewarding employment.

Background

About 26.65 million visually impaired persons currently live in the European Union, out of which about 2.65 million persons 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 available.

The Solution

The Tactonom enables blind people to access any information without the help of others. On its DIN-A4 sized touch area – with more than 10,500 tactile pixels – text as well as any type of graphics can be displayed.

For an independent life

The Tactonom enables blind people to access any information without the help of others. The gain in independence and autonomy is reinforced in the workplace where the Tactonom empowers blind people to access and be successful in new job profiles.
