Proposing Accessible Line Standards for Tactile Drafting Accessibility for Blind and Low-Vision Students

April 1, 2023 | Informal/Formal Connections, Public Programs

This article presents tactile drafting techniques developed in collaboration with blind educators and students that have the potential to increase BLV students’ access to drafting and engineering graphic curriculum in K-12 and higher education. This work builds on previous work funded by the National Science Foundation (Goodridge et al., 2019; Ashby et al., 2018; Lopez et al., 2020; Goodridge et al., 2021a; Goodridge et al., 2021b) and it is the authors’ hope that some of the practices included herein will allow BLV youth to further develop technological and engineering literacy in related technology and engineering graphics courses.
