$1,940.00

The PIAF creates raised line drawings on capsule or swell paper using heat. Users can draw, print or photocopy pictures onto the swell paper and pass it through the PIAF. The heat of the machine causes the lines to swell and then the drawing can be read with the fingers. It is ideal for people who are blind and vision impaired. PIAF is being used in a variety of educational, employment and personal settings.

Education In early education PIAF can be used to:

  • Introduce simple shapes and basic concepts
  • Learn to draw and taking the first tentative steps to expressing oneself graphically
  • Learn about handwriting and signature writing.

In secondary and tertiary education PIAF can be used to access graphical information in nearly all subject areas especially Maths and Science.

PIAF produces high quality localised area maps for orientation and mobility training and for campus or building maps for new students.
