The National Federation of the Blind hosted the third Tactile Graphics Symposium from October 11 - 12, 2018 at their campus in Baltimore, MD. The symposium, which this year focused on the use of tactile graphics in education, brought together the most innovative makers from the US and around the world with educators and users for two days of exchange and discovery. The IDA’s tactile exhibition of the Triumphal Arch of Palmyra was on display throughout.
The IDA’s Erin Simmons delivered the keynote address on Friday, Oct 12th, in place of Dr. Alexy Karenowska. The IDA is proud to be working towards accessibility in archaeology.
