In this edition of the FB-Eye Spotlight, we introduce you to VIEW International Foundation, Your Source For Tactile Graphics.
 
VIEW International Foundation is pleased to make available a large number of tactile diagrams developed for use by college students. Initially this collection was only available on CDs. Schools may purchase all or part of the collection depending on their needs.
 
VIEW International Foundation Company Logo To utilize the files in this collection, a school must have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader® software and a means for printing on and processing capsule paper. Schools and individuals can download the most current version of the free Adobe Reader® software here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
 
There are 11,280 files in the complete collection. The complete collection is on ten CDs and sells for $259.00. Each individual CD will sell for $59.00. These prices include shipping and handling.
 
The CDs are designed to run as a CD based product, and no installation is needed. To utilize these diagrams, they must be printed on capsule paper which is then processed with a machine like the PIAF ("Pictures in a Flash" from http://www.quantumtechnology.com.au/piaf) that activates the paper producing a raised image.
