Accessible Origami for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Six blue origami birds being led by one yellow origami bird.

Lindy is a totally blind mom of two sighted teenagers who has always loved arts and crafts. She is a big fan of origami but was frustrated by how visual most origami instructions are. Have you ever noticed that origami books and tutorials usually involve photos with almost no explanatory text?

She started her accessible origami blog around 2009 as a place to keep some text-only origami instructions. Over the years, she has compiled a lot of texts to fold different figures.

On her site, you can find text-based introductory tutorials on basic origami folds and how to get started folding for beginners. She also provides basic text-only step-by-step instructions on how to fold popular origami figures, including a fox, a swan, an angel fish, and a bouncy bunny.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s start folding!
