Lindy van der Merwe established the Accessible Origami Project in 2009. After becoming interested in origami, aka paper folding, she became frustrated with the fact that though there were lots of information available on origami on the Internet, almost all resources relied on visual representations. The Accessible Origami Project is different, in that it comprises no drawings, pictures or visual clues of any kind. Instructions are in text-only format. “I am hopeful that this project will help to make origami more accessible to children and adults who are blind or have low vision. It is geared towards those who would like to pursue origami on their own or who would like to teach it to those with visual impairment or even children and adults with special needs, who might benefit from learning in non-visual ways.”

For any questions, comments, suggestions or if you have contributions of your own, you may contact Lindy by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Accessible Origami” in the subject line.
ACCESSIBLE ORIGAMI – VOLUME 1
ACCESSIBLE ORIGAMI – VOLUME 2
The aim of this site will be to create a platform for those who make use of alternative methods of learning and teaching. It is especially aimed at blind and visually impaired users. We all learn in different ways, but there can be no doubt that we live in a world where learning through pictures, diagrams and demonstrations have become the norm. Not only does this situation present a challenge for those who are blind or have low vision, but coupled with the fact that learning materials are inaccessible in general, it is hoped that a platform for inclusive learning could be created to help bridge the gap and to enable those who learn in a non-visual way, to take up the challenge of learning, furthering their skills and attain a better quality of life through using the power of technology and the Internet.
Thank you for visiting and please check back soon if you are interested in learning or teaching in the context as set out above.
