I have a question and it is, has there been any work done to establish a
file standard for tactile images? So that one could print out from any
embosser (if the embosser producer supported it) that image. And it could
be an alternative print out for images on the internet. That is one would
have the chose to either print out an ink print-out or an embossed
version. The embossed version would be modified for tactile use.
Perhaps this is more of a question for hardware but such a standard would
help in tactile graphic drawing programs, and serve as an alternative
output for images on the internet. Would aid in the exchange of
