drawing into the lives of blind and visually impaired children and
The company's flagship product, inTACT Sketchpad and Eraser,
are comparable to the pencil and paper for sighted
individuals. The Sketchpad allows users to create tactile
drawings by hand. As they draw on the sketchpad, raised

feel their drawings along the way!
