New York Times article about a poet who is nearly blind. She worked
with scientists to create a machine that helps her see and she also
developed an iconic language. Because of her vision, words like book
and door are hard to read, so her visual language turns book into a b
- [picture of an open book] - k. Door is the D and R with a
"doorframe" in between. The article links to other pictures. I
immediately saw the meaning of these words, it was very intuitive and
I could see it working well for learning and vision disabled people in
gaming.
