Clipping Masks (8.G.2) Classroom Preparation steps to follow when setting up the learning environment 1. The graphic design modules are developed for instructors to demonstrate the application features on a computers connected to a projector so students can follow along. Students should then be given time to practice what they have seen by working independently on computers loaded with the applications. 2. This lesson was developed using a Tiger ViewPlus Pro embosser. Different embossers may produce different results so instructors and students may need to experiment with their own machines to achieve desired effects. If time, the instructor should make adjustments to the lesson based on the equipment prior to teaching. Graphic Design Module 8-3

5 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator Curriculum Content A. Interpreting Tactile Graphics (30 minutes) Objective GD8.1: Review best practices when creating tactile graphics. PREINSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES Divide students into groups and give each group a textbook with graphics to review. Assess how information is communicated visually and discuss modifications that should be made to present the information more effectively for a tactile reader. Review best practices for creating a tactile graphic with a Tiger embosser. Discuss the objectives for this module. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Explain to students that Illustrator, like Microsoft Word, can be used with an embosser. The advantage of using Illustrator is the amount of control the program allows. With Illustrator, it is possible to be very precise and edit easily. This lesson will focus on using Illustrator as a medium for creating tactile graphics. Students will combine knowledge gained in the Introduction to Illustrator Module with additional tools and techniques more specific to the creation of embossed graphics. Methods for creating common graphics will be explored. ASSESSMENT List three best practices when creating effective tactile graphics for a braille reader. B. Setting up a Document (1 hour) Objective GD8.2: Create a template for Tiger graphics. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Discuss how to set up a document in Illustrator that will be used with a Tiger embosser. Because Illustrator is not designed for embossing tactile graphics, you will have to follow several steps to set up the document. However, after changing all desired settings, a template can be generated so these steps only need to be completed once. Graphic Design Module 8-4

6 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator Determine the margin measurements required based on the settings of your embosser. The graphic page should fit 25 cells down and 40 cells across. Demonstrate how to create a template tailored to your embosser. Use Creating a New Document (8.B.1) as a reference. Note: The template can be further customized based on needs and personal preferences. Panels can be deleted, the workspace rearranged, etc. Simply set the document as desired and save over the original embosser template. ASSESSMENT Create a template tailored to your embosser following the steps in Creating a New Document (8.B.1). C. Adjusting a Line (1 hour) Objective GD8.3: Manipulate lines using the Stroke Panel. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Review how to draw a line to the desired length and angle using the Pen Tool and Line Segment Tool. Demonstrate how to rotate the line. Remember, fill is unimportant but there must be a stroke. Discuss options for making adjustments to the line using the Stroke Panel including changing the weight, making it dashed, and adding arrowheads. Explain how to adjust the length of a dash and how to add and adjust the size of arrows to one or both sides of a line. Reference and distribute Creating and Manipulating Lines (8.C.1). ASSESSMENT Recreate the trapezoid drawn in the Microsoft Word Tactile Graphic Lesson using Line Assessment (8.C.2) as a guide. D. Texture (1 hour) Objective GD8.4: Manipulate the tactile quality of embossed graphics. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Graphic Design Module 8-5

7 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator Discuss how to achieve different lines and textures using Microsoft Word. Like in Word, in order to manipulate the tactile quality of the embossed graphics in Illustrator, the stroke and hue need to be adjusted. The thicker the line and/or the darker the color, the more pronounced it will be. For simplicity, it is a good practice to work only in shades of black. Demonstrate how to add texture to a shape. Open the Swatches Panel. Click on the icon to expand the menu (top right corner). Select Open Swatches Library > Patterns > Basic graphics > and select from Dots, Lines, or Textures. Demonstrate how to add one of these fills to a rectangle. Note: The size of the pattern does not change when the shape is scaled. To reduce the intensity of the pattern, decrease the opacity in the Transparency Panel. Transcribers-in-training will need to experiment with these different patterns to determine how to achieve the best results, taking into consideration the embosser used and the needs of the reader. ASSESSMENT Create 11 boxes. Make each a slightly lighter hue using the folder with grays in the Swatches Palette. Begin with K=100 in the first box, make the second k=90, etc. Next, make lines next to one another varying the weight of the Stroke. Begin with a weight of.25, make the next 1, etc. Finally, create four boxes and fill each with a different texture. Emboss and evaluate the results. Discuss as a group which patterns are most successful. E. Make a Graph (2.5 hours) Objective GD8.5: Utilize the Rectangular Grid Tool and Graph Tool. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Lead the students in a discussion of different types of graphs. Explain students are going to explore various ways these could be made in Illustrator. It is important for students to learn and explore various techniques and decide which method is easiest for them. Creating graphs quickly is important for transcribers so have students find their preferred methods and practice until they are confident. Demonstrate how to create a Cartesian plane using the Rectangular Grid Tool (found in the same menu as the Line Segment Tool). Show how to edit the grid as a grouped object, darkening the axes and adding arrows. Use Cartesian Graph Assessment (8.E.1) as a reference. If possible, find a more complex line graph and demonstrate how students could plot and connect points using the Ellipse Tool the Line or Pen Tools. Graphic Design Module 8-6

8 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator Demonstrate the Graph Tool by creating a pie chart using Pie Chart Assessment (8.E.2) as a guide. Explain how to Import Data, Transpose Row/ Columns, Switch x/y, and Apply. Demonstrate creating other types of graphs using this tool including bar and line graphs. Note: Graphs can be ungrouped to make them easier to edit but the ability to update data is lost. Discuss the pros and cons of the Graph Tool. (For example, easy to update information and changes will automatically be implemented; no control over how graph is generated, axes labeled, etc.) Note: To save time in the future, transcribers-in-training can create different grids and charts which can be saved as templates and later edited as needed. ASSESSMENT Recreate the Cartesian and pie graphs drawn in the Microsoft Word Tactile Graphic Lesson using Cartesian Assessment (8.E.1) and Pie Graph Assessment (8.E.2) as guides. F. Adding Text (1.5 hours) Objective GD8.6: Add braille using the Type Tool. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Review the best font to use with your embosser, in this case Braille29 and Braille29 ASCII. (Tiger Embosser Braille29 font can be downloaded for free from the ViewPlus Technologies website.) In order for the braille to emboss correctly, the font size needs to be set to 29. The leading (the amount of space between the lines of text) needs to be changed to 29 because the default will make the braille lines too close together. The tracking (the amount of space between the braille cells) should be set to -1. Also make sure the hyphenate box is not checked in the Paragraph menu (to the right of Character on the Property Bar) or your text may have breaks in strange places. Note: These are the settings that were modified when the embosser template was created. Discuss different ways to add text. A text box can be drawn by selecting the Type Tool. Click, hold down, drag the mouse and release to create a text box. Text can then be typed in directly or copied and pasted into the text box. Text can also be imported from other programs such as Microsoft Word and Notepad. Demonstrate how to import text by Graphic Design Module 8-7

9 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator selecting File> Place. Note: Imported text retains all formatting. It may be necessary to adjust the font size, leading, and/ or tracking. Explain a small red plus may appear in the bottom left corner indicating the text box (or bounding box) is too small. Demonstrate how to stretch the box larger. Emphasize the importance of keeping the bounding box as small as possible. This way, when objects are selected, the text box will not be in the way. It will keep the document cleaner and easier to work with. Note: To find symbols such as hyphens, bullets, accents marks, etc., you will use Glyphs. To access the glyphs click Type>Glyphs and a box will appear with all of the symbols available in the selected font. ASSESSMENT Recreate the histogram drawn in the Microsoft Word Tactile Graphic Lesson using Histogram Assessment (8.F.1) as a guide. G. Other Helpful Tools (1 hour) Objective GD8.7: Utilize the Shape Builder Tool, Clipping Masks, and the Drawing Modes Panel. CONTENT PRESENTATION AND LEARNER PARTICIPATION Demonstrate how to use the Shape Builder Tool. The Shape Builder Tools is a helpful tool to explore. Often times, a complex illustration can be created using simple shapes. To combine all of these shapes so they only have one path, select all and select the Shape Builder Tool. You will notice when you hold the tool over the shapes, the space that is shared turns gray. If you move the mouse over the line dividing this space, it will disappear. One advantage over simply grouping the shapes is if you want have a stroke, only the outline of the entire shape will appear. Use Shape Builder Tool (8.G.1) as a guide. Review Clipping Masks. As in Photoshop, masking is a way to hide parts of your illustration. Demonstrate making and releasing a clipping mask in Illustrator using Clipping Masks (8.G.2) as a guide. Discuss the Drawing Modes Panel. The default mode is Draw Normal which orders illustrations in the order they are created. For example, if a circle is drawn first and a Graphic Design Module 8-8

10 Module #8 Tactile Graphics with Illustrator square second, the square will be in front of the circle. If Draw Behind mode is selected, the square would be behind the circle. Draw Inside mode acts as a clipping mask meaning the square is cropped by the circle. Note: a shape must be selected in order to use Draw Inside. ASSESSMENT Follow the steps on handouts Shape Builder Tool (8.G.1) and Clipping Masks (8.G.2). Practice drawing using each drawing mode. Graphic Design Module 8-9
