The Joy Player joins the Tactile Graphic Image Library
Students who use tactile communication symbols can now request their favorite personal music player—The Joy Player. Requested by Cindy Corbett, a visual impairment and orientation and mobility specialist from Indiana, APH now offers STL files of the Joy Player button switches on the Tactile Graphic Image Library, enabling consumers to 3-D print the file. Whether your student uses the symbol alone or mounted on a communication card, he or she can express a personal desire to listen to music in an appropriate way and expect a response. Tactile symbols are tools for teaching important communication and functional literacy skills.
