Making Digital Maps Accessible Using Vibrations
Abstract. In order to allow blind and deafblind people to use and explore electronically available maps, we have developed a system that displays maps in a tactile way using a standard rumble gamepad. The system is intended for both on-site and off-site use and therefore includes mechanisms for getting overviews of larger regions as well as for the exploration of small areas. Key words: Haptic Maps, Vibrating Maps, Blind Users
