Multisensory Graphic Communication for Blind and Partially Sighted Individuals (BPSI) by Mitali Kamat

Reflections & Considerations

Mitali Kamat

Drawing With Touch:

In order to explore an alternate sensory feedback system for producing graphic information I conducted a simple experiment to encourage self reflection.


Although a lot of multisensory drawing tools are available currently, very few of the digital tools are widely used. Most significant limitations noted in tools currently available are that they are either too complicated i.e not intuitive enough or are too expensive.

What according to you would be the ideal multisensory drawing tool and what components should it have? I would love to hear more about your insights from this exhibit. Please leave your feedback on the exhibit in the form linked below.

I will also be conducting a synchronous session from 3:00-4:00 p.m August 9th to explore Non-Graphic Modeling. In this session participants will get a chance to explore building a neuron from a text only description. If you would like to participate in this session please click on the following zoom link Zoom Meeting Link for Non-Graphic Modeling

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you enjoy exploring the other exhibits!

    I think a Multisensory digital and affordable drawing tool is the need of the hour.A vast majority of the blind or partially blind are in poor and developing countries .A lot of them may be talented and may find a way to not only express themselves but also to sustain themselves through this initiative.
