The Magical Bridge Foundation mission is to bring inclusive, accessive playgrounds that can be enjoyed by all children. For the first time, it is now possible for blind and visually impaired visitors to view a nonvisual map of the Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto, at home, directly from their web browser using Audiom. Audiom was developed by Smith-Kettlewell researcher, Brandon Biggs, is a map viewing tool for the visually impaired. It allows non-visual access to route, landmark, and survey knowledge -- critical information needed for navigation.
