Abstract

An aqueous suspension of clay was delivered through an electromagnetic ink-jet printer head onto partially dried clay tile to produce patterns in relief. The patterns formed Braille symbols intended for tactile recognition by visually impaired persons (VIP). This solid freeforming procedure means that conventional clay products such as wall tile, although mass-produced, can acquire individuation so that tactile information can be delivered to VIPs to assist, for example, in navigation in the built environment
