According to a National Health Interview Survey, 20.6 million American Adults age 18 and older reported experiencing vision loss. Visions loss is refers to individuals who reported that they have trouble seeing, even when wearing glasses or contact lenses, as well as to individuals who reported that they are blind or unable to see at all

American Printing House for the Blind (APH) is the world’s largest nonprofit organization creating educational, workplace, and independent living products and services for people who are blind and visually impaired.

The Interactive U.S. Map with Talking Tactile Pen is a fun, dynamic learning tool for accessing information about the 50 states!

The Interactive U.S. Map’s combination of tactile, visual, and audio feedback contributes to a versatile learning experience that allows for independent, self-guided study by visually impaired and blind students and adults, as well as by sighted peers.

The Talking Tactile Pen consists of a non-writing stylus, a tactile Power button, an audio jack, and a micro-USB connector (for recharging the pen after long periods of use). The audio content can be heard through the pen’s tiny speaker, however, standard headphones (headphones sold separately) or external speakers can provide better sound quality for the synthetic speech and sound effects.

The pen serves as a personal “tour guide” that gives the reader information about each location visited on the map via multiple layers of audio recordings. The reader is allowed to “drill down” layer by layer via consecutive pen taps to learn about each state.

17 Pen Layers Include: State name; State abbreviation, State capital; Ten largest cities; Surroundings (land & water); Land area, water area, state water percentage; Highest point (elevation); Major rivers; Population estimate; Statehood year; State nickname; State symbols (bird, flower, tree, and song title); State motto; Famous people; Points of interest; Interesting facts; Spelling of state name

Includes

      • Foldable tactile/large print map of the United States
      • Modified Livescribe™ Echo™ Smartpen with audio content, 3.5mm headphone jack, and mini-USB port
      • USB charging cable
      • Storage pouch for pen and charging cable
      • Carrying box to store components
      • Large print instruction booklet
              • Braille instruction booklet – UEB Compliant

Livescribe™ is a trademark of Livescribe Inc. The Talking Tactile Pen is a modified version of the Livescribe Echo™ smartpen.”

CESI expects that additional specific Anoto pen applications within education and healthcare soon will follow.
