Tactile Graphics Volunteer

At Home or On-Site

Last updated October 21, 2015


Enjoy the challenge of transforming print diagrams, maps, and other graphic images into tactile-ready graphics for children and adults with print disabilities. With your help, children and adults can have access to a world of graphical information.

Adapt a variety of print graphics, such as mathematical diagrams, floor charts, maps, bar graphs and other educational materials, using graphics software on a computer. Many assignments may have tight deadlines so that students can receive their school assignments at the same time as their sighted peers. It's a perfect opportunity for retirees or persons with time to volunteer from home.


Time Commitment:

This is an ongoing and long-term commitment. We ask a minimum of 5 hours per week, ongoing, with more time required during training.


Basic Training will be provided by an ABLE staff member. Additional training opportunities and possible certification will also be offered. An 8-10 hour per week commitment for study and completion of homework assignments is necessary. A commitment to ABLE after training is an expectation.


At Home, or at our office in the Central Library Building in downtown Milwaukee.
