Audiom is a tool that allows blind and visually impaired individuals to view maps completely in audio. It is a web component and can be embedded into any webpage, similar to Google Maps. It allows non-visual access to route, landmark, and survey knowledge, which is the critical information needed for navigation. It can also show large maps, such as the globe, and communicate information such as the shape of Italy and what Italy borders with.
Audiom is based off the conventions found in audio games, which are games that can be played completely in audio. The interface has also been co-designed with over 30 blind individuals. The knowledge transfer partner for Audiom is XR Navigation. Visit Audiom at:
