Jeff Thompson is joined in the studio by Brandon Biggs, inclusive designer and Engineer with The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute (SKI), the foremost organization for vision research in the U. s. and Christopher Toth, an Applications Engineer.
Audiom is the solution for “glancability” of a map to give an idea of location of objects, places and relationships to each other as a map does for a sighted person. Using audio soundscapes, stereo location design along with map coordinates , one will be able to mind map out a venue, park, mall through audio maps.
Christopher Toth was hired on to build the application and you can find demos and give the application a try on the web at www.Audiom.net.
Brandon Biggs and Christopher Toth talk about the development process and where they see Audiom in the future. Be sure to give the Beta a try and how your feedback can help make maps more accessible to us all.
You will also learn about other maps that they have built using data from the COVID statistics and how you can build your own map right from the web site at www,Audiom.net.
We hope you enjoy.
