When visitors find at the beginning of their journey a 3D model and inclusive map of the facility they can have: a quick look, a tactile discovery or an audio description, in other words, the layer they need to access informations and have a mental image of the place they enter. Orienting people in Museum and complex spaces is part of Tactile Studio challenge since 10 years, through co-design with blind users, testing and prototyping, tailor made inclusive sensory wayfinding has come true. This presentation will come through 3 examples of inclusive solutions : a static 3D model of the Mankind Museum, an interactive 3D model to explore the complex of La Villette a cultural space in France (map system, which incorporates Braille, embossed elements and audio messages) and an inclusive indoor GPS. Each tailor made product are accessible to several categories of users and acknowledges the diversity of the population in the meantime. Join the movement! With the lens of accessible experiences for blind users, attendees will be able to discuss and list new strategies to implement space representation. Focusing on 3 examples of inclusive map participant will be able to compare solutions and select the most adapted one to a dedicated project.
