[community] Brain anatomy learning tools suitable for blind user

I just reached out to a colleague who wrote the following:

Just did a bit of searching and it would seem there is very little actually
available (bar one book of tactile graphics that has two pretty basic brain
diagrams in it and it quite expensive). I will ask my colleagues but it
seems like this might be a general issue, as these neuroscience academics
presented this poster at a big neuroscience conference recently:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6650262/
<https://webmail.baycrest.org/OWA/redir.aspx?REF=83fvwmMwryiNRPnw-xCqnaUJrw6rCs8bt9x9bvjffpEkbDpGhCrXCAFodHRwczovL3d3dy5uY2JpLm5sbS5uaWguZ292L3BtYy9hcnRpY2xlcy9QTUM2NjUwMjYyLw..>

Can I ask - what level of brain anatomy does this person want to learn? If
they're interested, I could always discuss this with the outreach program
at Rotman and see if we could get some students to make a set of tactile
resources that we could also make available more broadly perhaps.

Let me know what you think. Thanks,
Robin
