The Tactility of Words

Click to listen:

This project is as an exploration of accessibility and how by creating better design we can bring compassion into technology. While I was interested in this idea I wasn’t in love with what I was making. After this realization, my project shifted to focus on my personal experience having a disability: dyslexia.


This project explores accessibility through a reinterpretation of my experience with learning with dyslexia that is both auditory and dimensional. The project enables the participants to create a new relationship with words that is tactile and curious

By pressing down and moving your hands across the canvas the audience will be able to explore the power of language and learn about the importance of creating accessible web design.
