I have attached a file for a math page with 4 different grid/graphs with shaded areas. Each has 3 different shaded areas. Would this be better done using collage or computer generated or a combination of both? How would I show the different shaded areas with either of the methods? Help, please.
I found a copy of the Guidelines and Standards Supplement that had a similar Cartesian Graph in Example 10. Do you know what they used to make the shaded regions? I thought at first they were the metal plates that came in the gray boxed graphic tools from years ago. I do not think they are though, at least not the ones I have. Any help would be appreciated.
Glad that you found the example in the Supplement to the Guidelines. That is exactly what I was going to refer you to. I know who created the original, so I will ask what was used and let you know. Hopefully I can get a reply though its the weekend. Betty
Thanks for your patience in getting an answer back on this post. Region 4 (in Houston, TX) created the original tactile used for Example 10 of the Supplement. Here is the response that I received, along with a couple of attached files (for Tiger).
“Debbie Holliday is the artist that made this graphic. She says the grid and shading were done on the Tiger. The shading was done with a pattern and then manually omitting every other dot. She saved a square of shading and then pasted it in where she needed it. She removed shading as she needed it around numbers and next to diagonal lines.”
Hope you find this information helpful! Thanks Region 4 for the explanation!!
Is there anyway Debbie Holiday would be able to communicate directly with me about how to produce the grid and pattern? I cannot download either of the .prn files. I use the Tiger embosser with graphics produced through Word’s Draw toolbar but I’ve never been able to produce such straight lines and I don’t know how to manually omit every other dot.
It would be a great help if I could learn some more skills with the Tiger.
I’m sorry. I meant I cannot make smooth lines, not straight lines. As I said, I use Word’s Draw toolbar and Braille2000 text. I couldn’t find any kind of pattern that even looked close to the 5 dots in Example 10 of the Supplemental Volume. Does anyone have any sources of training for the Tiger embosser? What program(s) does Debbie Holiday use? Maybe that’s my problem.
