Tactalis, formerly known as Invici Technologies Inc, was established in 2012 by CEO and founder Douglas Hagedorn.

We develop tactile tablet computer systems that help people who are blind or visually impaired to explore, create and share images and digital media that they cannot see. Each of their award-winning products has a unique, touch-sensitive interface and embedded tactile display that let users touch and feel physical representations of features, symbols and graphics on an LCD screen.

Tactalis’ patent-pending technology opens up an unlimited world of digitized, interactive, tactile graphics, such as maps, apps, diagrams, charts, games, spreadsheets and graphs, for use at home, school, work and play.
