MIMBUS: Pioneering accessibility in virtual training

In the constantly evolving field of virtual reality (VR) for vocational training, MIMBUS stands out as a pioneer in accessibility. We are committed to making its applications accessible to everyone, including people with various disabilities. With a full range of carefully integrated options, MIMBUS strives to create inclusive virtual training experiences tailored to everyone.

MIMBUS virtual training solutions are designed to be accessible to a wide range of people, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. In order to meet the specific needs of each user, MIMBUS has implemented a number of innovative features to ensure an immersive and educational experience for all.
A global commitment to accessibility
Accessibility is at the heart of MIMBUS’ mission, and every detail is carefully considered to ensure that its applications can be used by everyone. These features have been developed under the guidance of Christian Cousquer, a renowned expert in accessibility at the CNAM (Conservatoire national des arts et métiers).
Options adapted to various disorders
1. Multisensory instructions: Instructions are available in text and audio form, making them easier to use for people with visual or hearing impairments, as well as for dyslexics.
2. Help with remembering interactions: Differentiated reminder panels, rings and coloured outlines are integrated to help people with memory or attention problems.
3. High-contrast mode: A high-contrast mode that can be activated on all interfaces is of particular benefit to the visually impaired.
4. Colour blindness filters: For people with colour blindness, the information conveyed by the colour is doubled by iconography, ensuring complete understanding.
5. Font customisation: Dyslexic users can adjust fonts throughout the application to make reading easier.
6. Virtual handles for reduced mobility: Virtual handles make it easier to pick up objects from the ground, providing an optimal experience for paraplegics.
7. Highlighting important objects: For people with attention problems, important objects are highlighted, making it easier to concentrate.
8. Use of tools with both hands: The applications are designed to enable the use of all tools with both hands, to the benefit of people suffering from hemiplegia.
