1 blue slate (12 x 2 1/2 inches), 1 double-ended stylus, 1 storage pocket, and 1 instruction booklet
Helps you create raised lines for tactile graphics onto various media (braille paper, vinyl, foil, and drawing film).
The Tactile Graphic Line Slate and specially designed two-ended stylus accommodate the tooling of common tactile line types for creation of tactile graphic displays by transcribers, teachers, and students. Use this lightweight slate to embellish tactile maps, graphs, charts, number lines, etc., with the following line types:
Large dotted line
Small dotted line
Wide solid line
Thin solid line
Vertical bar line
Combinations of the available lines also generate unique, discernible line paths (e.g., dot-dash-dot). The pointed end of the stylus is used to tool the small dotted line, dashed line, thin solid line, and vertical bar line; the rounded end of the stylus is ideal for tooling the wide solid line and large dotted line.
The Tactile Graphic Line Slate mimics the design and function of a typical braille slate, making its use intuitive and user-friendly. Its blue-tinted transparent plastic allows both visual contrast against the drawing surface/paper, and positioning of lines in relation to surrounding tactile elements on the page.
