A Reproducible Experiment Towards the Accessibility of a Geographical Map

Abstract : The “Mappa Mundi d’Albi” is an eighth-century map, registered in the Unesco‘s World heritage list in 2015. Difficult to understand even visually, it requires explanation and contextualization. In accordance with the legislation regarding the accessibility of cultural works, and to allow its understanding, we have implemented various devices, via digital technology, to make it accessible to as many people as possible. Different criteria of accessibility and perception of sensory modalities have been studied. After an analysis of the already existing accessibility design we have designed and evaluated different prototypes of enhanced digital and tangible maps. These prototypes have been put in place through different partnerships and based on a goal of reproducibility at low cost. The other objective was, taking into account the “diy” culture of fablabs, the work in collaboration for teachers specialized in accessibility or not and non-computer scientists.
