In 2002, the Tate Museum launched i-Map, an art resource designed to be accessible for visually impaired people. i-Map uses text, audio, and animation to help those who cannot see the artwork gain an understanding. This process also creates a resource that can be enjoyed by sighted users as well, particularly the narrated animations. The original version of i-Map focused on eight works by Picasso and Braque, and used raised images and animation. The 2010 expansion presents the work of six 20th century artists: Patrick Caulfield, Giorgio de Chirico, Natalya Goncharova, Fernand Leger, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Francis Picabia, and Kurt Schwitters. The newer portion of i-Map also takes advantage of updates in technology that have arisen since 2002. For each artwork, there is explanatory text that can be read by a screen reader. Visitors can follow along on a narrated - by Crispin Bonham Carter - animation, as well as download a transcript of the narration. Downloadable raised images in .pdf format, designed to be printed on swell paper with a heat-fusing machine, and accompanying MP3 audio, are also available.
