People who are deaf-blind communicate through touch-based processes, from finger spelling to exploring objects with their hands or feet. Some people who are deaf-blind use a grammar of touch that includes pressure, location, speed, hand shape and motion. Alphabetum Taktus is the suggestion of a new kind of sensory 3D alphabet. This new haptic font allows blind and sighted people to communicate with each other in a playful way.
