These are projects presented by S.W.C. members. If you have a project you would like to share, please mention it in the SIGN UP page.
We would love to hear about your project!
Afterglow Access is hosted by IDATA and is a browser-based astronomical image and data analysis software. This software works with screen readers and turns astronomical images into sound. There is a contact form at https://idataproject.org/contact/.
AstreOS is hosted by Oseyeris and is a multi sensorial astronomy app using the accelerometer to provide spatially accurate locations of every object in the sky. Move your phone around to target planets, moons, asteroids, comets, constellations, black holes and galaxies where they are currently located in the sky.
Astronify is hosted by Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST) and is a Python package used to sonify astronomical data. Contact email@example.com.
Astronomy4BD is hosted by Erasmus+ and seeks to develop a database of astronomical objects sorted based on characteristics. The database will also convert these images into sound for blind or visually impaired individuals to experience the science and beauty of astronomy. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project is hosted by NASA. It enables average citizens without an astronomy background and education to observe and analyze different exoplanets. These people, then, can publish their data to professional researchers.
IMAGE is hosted by McGill University’s Shared Reality Lab and seeks to create a web browser extension that enables users to experience graphics on the web using audio and touch. There is a youtube video introducing this project left of this caption, so it should be on the left side of the screen.
This project is hosted by Ultraleap. It works to create programmable touch sensations with ultrasonic waves. This helps create virtual tactile experiences to enhance education, especially for visually impaired individuals. Contact email@example.com.
Multi-Sensory Tour of the Universe/A Dark Tour of the Universe
This project is hosted by ESO. It provides an accessible, tactile astronomy show to assist BVI individuals with learning about the universe. This project uses 3D models of real astronomical datasets. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SAS Graphics Accelerator
SAS Graphics Accelerator is hosted by SAS Enterprises an extension on a computer that enhances digital visualizations with text descriptions, tabular data, and interactive sonification.
SenseMath is hosted by Visio and is an app that converts mathematical formulas, functions, and graphs to sound, so visually impaired individuals can grasp abstract mathematical concepts that tend to be portrayed visually. Contact email@example.com.
Sensing the Dynamic Universe
Sensing the Dynamic Universe is hosted by SonoUno and seeks to help users sense, understand and appreciate many types of astronomical phenomena, including single stars, binary stars, neutron stars, black holes, supernovae, quasars and more. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sonifying Bacterial Chemotaxis
This project is hosted by University of Virginia. It sonifies bacterial chemotaxis. Not only are chemotaxis are hard to interperet visually, but also it is important to sonify biological data to help BVI researchers.
This is a project that turns scatterplots into sound files to enhance accessibility. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Sonoplanet (Check out LEARN group page)
Sonoplanet is hosted by Sonokids in Australia. The institution creates accessible educational games that teach blind or visually impaired children technological and fundamental skills for interpreting data in the form of sound. For general information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sonopy is hosted by Mycroft and is a digital programming library used to sonify data and make calculations of audio signals.
Star Sound is a software tool for the sonification of multidimensional data. Contact: email@example.com.
STRAUSS is a “sonification toolkit for python” that can be used to sonify data. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
