CorelDraw Basics for Creating Tactile Graphics

CorelDraw is a popular application for creating tactile graphics files that are then copied onto microcapsule paper and processed to create raised lines, textured surfaces, and other tactile features to make visual graphics and diagrams accessible to the blind or low vision learner.

In this presentation, Seema Kapoor, alternate format transcriber from PRCVI, introduces the basics of using CorelDraw to create tactile graphics files. The presentation covers how to configure CorelDraw and use tactile graphics templates as well as how to create basic lines, curves, and shapes. This is the first in a two-part series of virtual presentations on CorelDraw.
