When I asked several people: "What would you give people without disabilities or what would have to happen for people without disabilities to have a better understanding of accessibility?" I got the same response from many: "Everyone would have to be in our shoes for a day to be sensitized!" My design deals with orientation for blind people in public spaces. I designed a tactile model, which helps the affected person to anticipate the upcoming path already at home, in order to walk it more successfully and without help by themselves.
