I don't have any suggestions for drawing, but foam alphabet
letters work really well. You can use them for a long time.
I've only seen them in puzzle form, but the letters come out of
the puzzle board. They're how I learned how to write. Hope this

Subject: [nobe-l] raised letters
When I informally teach/tutor other blind people, I might need
raised letters to label graphics. Iâd use braille if they knew
braille. Those losing vision later in life do not know braille
and may lack the sensativity to read it.
What low tech solutions work well? Iâm visually impaired
myself, but can see enough to draw the letters provided there is
enough contrast. Iâve heard a common method is using glue or
puff paint. The drawback is that it takes a long time to dry and
it is not very raised. Maybe there is something else that takes
less time to dry that I can buy.
Ideally, Iâd like letters I might be able to move around but
are also durable enough to be used a while. I like the idea of
the wheatley kit from APH since its various lines and shapes can
show a lot, but I donât think it has raised letters.
Is there some other type of craft paint I can get from a store?
Is there something I can draw with that raises up on paper? Maybe
a thermal pen? How much does that cost?
Thanks for any ideas.
