Development and Evaluation of Two Prototypes for Providing Weather Map Data to Blind Users Through Sonification

Abstract While most aspects of web accessibility are technically easy to solve, providing accessible equivalents of data visualizations for blind users remains a challenging problem. Previous attempts at accessible equivalents focused on sonification of population data. This paper describes the creation of two prototypes for providing real-time weather information in a sonified format for blind […] [Read More]
