Abstract:This paper describes the structure of a mini-hackathon which was organized to better understand ways in which navigational technologies can be used to support individuals with disabilities when exploring indoor environments. Pairs of programmers worked together with a navigational API to develop mobile apps to provide route-based information in accessible format. Experiences from the mini-hackathon are described, along with lessons learned. Insights gained from organizing the event may offer promise to accessibility researchers interested in hosting similar types of event.
