AHVIIT-ACCESS (Audio Haptics for Visually Impaired Information Technology) project seeks to improve the inclusion of workers or trainees with sight loss in vocational training programmes using visual materials, by delivering these in a non visual format that is touch and sound. The project will design, produce and test pilot learning materials as well as create an online training programme for teachers.
Pilot Course Material
- Three pilot sets of Talking Tactile overlay course materials produced and evaluated covering topics from widely differing industry sectors, these include:
- Sports Massage,
- Food Hygiene & Basic Cookery Skills,
- Basic Computer Awareness and Operation (Produced in both German and English)
Talking Tactile overlays are the mechanism for accessing graphical information in an audio format.
The course materials will proactively enable and support people with disabilities to gain new skills or up-grade their existing skills in the work place.
