The Scripor Alphabet.
Continuation of The Braille Legacy
Colour, a word, regardless of language, dialect, culture, geography, has been reduced to a symbol. The tactile representation of colours – known as the Scripor Alphabet – is a concept based on the extension of the Braille alphabet. This innovative, easy-to-learn and universal chromatic standardization, allows the blind person to read, write, understand, remember and recognize colors, efficiently. Using the principles of Universal Design, Scripor Alphabet is designed empowering to the blind and people with visual disabilities, enabling them to live more fully in a colourful world.
The fundamental group of the Scripor Alphabet contains only 10 tactile – graphic signs, the rest of 35 are combinations of representations of shades, tones or intensities of colors. This makes the Scripor Alphabet easily assimilated by blind children and adults very quickly (minutes) and is gaining popularity and practicality every day in their lives. The simplicity of the Scripor alphabet makes it very compatible with assistive technology. It is also:
Universal.- The Scripor Alphabet can be easily learned by anyone regardless of language, culture or geographic location.
Practical.- The colour symbols can be read with one finger, or by using one or both hands. It can be read from any direction; from top to bottom, from left to right and so on. The symbols can be oriented in any direction because of the presence of the orientation point.
Easy to Learn.- Most people can achieve fluency in the Scripor Alphabet within a few minutes. It is also relevant for people who are born blind or for color blind.
Accessible.– The Scripor Alphabet can be taught to very young children and is easy for people who have become blind later in life to learn.
Simple.- The Scripor Alphabet uses just one or two cells to represent a colour along with its tint, shade, tone or saturation. Compatible with technology such as modern printers, yet it can also be handwritten using an embossing tool.
