It is ideal for people who are blind and vision impaired. PIAF's controlled heat source causes any black lines, letters or shapes that are drawn, printed or copied onto the capsule paper to swell. The result is an instant tactile graphic. PIAF is being used in a variety of educational, employment and personal settings.
