Abstract

We present Atlas.txt, a novel data-to-text natural language generation system which enables access to geo-referenced information like online census data. We first discuss initial findings from an accessibility study on geo-referenced data and outline needs requirements for visually-impaired users of such data. We then present work towards realising our data-to-text system and indicate how it aims to address this issue.
