The Monarch Tactile Display – Where Are We Now?

Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 2:20 PM PDT  
Grand CD  
Over the past two-plus years, the American Printing House for the Blind, HumanWare, and the National Federation of the Blind have been hard at work finalizing the first-of-its-kind tactile tablet device called the Monarch. Thanks to the innovative braille cell technology from DOT Inc., the Monarch can display both tactile graphics and braille on the same surface. This session will summarize the project's current state, lessons learned, what’s next, and when you can expect to see the Monarch readily available. During the presentation, attendees will see live demonstrations of the Monarch accessing tactile content in real-time.
