Discover the potential
of audio-tactile graphics

At Inventivio, we want existing barriers to education, mobility, participation and employment to be removed.

Tactonom Reader

The Tactonom Reader is a new technology for blind and visually severely impaired people that facilitates access to the graphic world.

By combining the sense of touch and speech explanation, even complex content becomes comprehensible.

The name Tactonom comes from ‘tactile’ and ‘autonomous’, because independent work without the help of others is important to us. More about the Tactonom.


The Tactonom is an interactive, camera-based graphic display that can present any information. It will consist of more than 10,591 tactile points and enable autonomous working.


Did you know that:

  • city maps, floor plans and escape plans are rarely accessible to blind and visually severely impaired people?
  • that many common learning graphics in school are not available for blind and visually severely impaired students?
  • and that there are very few picture books and children’s books for blind and visually severely impaired children?

During his time at school, Fabi also did not have enough graphics at his disposal available.

Fabi helps creating audio-tactile graphics.
