Shapereader is a community-specific tactile conlang (constructed language). Initially designed for the purposes of visually impaired users in regards to tactile textual production it is unbound by the particularities of ethnic and native alphabets or Braille code and addresses all users, regardless of their nationality, language, educational level, or subsistence under any visual handicap. Shapereader consists of an expanding repertoire of free-floating tactile ideograms (tactigrams) intended to provide haptic equivalents for all the semantic features, the conceptual functions and textual attributes. By circumventing the verbovocovisual apparatus, it transposes semantic and syntactical structures cognizance to the reader’s fingertips. Shapereader promotes an embodied textual experience and has been presented internationally, with exhibitions, workshops and conferences. More information can be found on the website.
