3DPhotoWorks is committed to delivering accessible and inclusive images to the blind, disabled, and sighted communities. These transformative experiences allow for an intimate connection with a wide range of visual and graphic material. Images designed for touch provide the opportunity to acquire visual information independently, without relying on recorded descriptions or the interpretation of a sighted companion. Users can explore the depth and complexity of their favorite artworks and images, often for the first time.
Since 2008, the company has worked closely with the blind community to research and develop tactile technology. In 2021, 3DPhotoWorks, Tactile Image’s, the National Federation of the Blind, and Getty Images partnered to deliver more than 45 million images to the blind and disabled at museums, science centers, libraries, government agencies, and cultural institutions worldwide.
