Abstract [sv]

Från en tidigare studie angående tillgängligheten vid Högskolan i Gävle för personermed rörelsehinder rekommenderades det att en liknande studie för personer med nedsattorienteringsförmåga borde göras. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka omHögskolan i Gävles entréer är tillgänglighetsanpassade för personer med nedsattorienteringsförmåga. Inventeringen grundas från BBR:s kapitel om tillgänglighet ochdess allmänna råd. I studien inventeras tolv utvalda entréer på Högskolan i Gävle.Studien presenterar även ändringsförslag i form av ritningar för att visa hur entréernakan bli tillgänglighetsanpassade samt en kostnadskalkyl för ändringarna angående deutvalda entréerna. För att få en helhetsbild över problemen utfördes det även enlaboration samt en intervju med Gävle kommuns tillgänglighetssamordnare. Resultatetav studien visade att Högskolan i Gävles entréer har brister i tillgängligheten förpersoner med nedsatt orienteringsförmåga. Ett stort problem som upptäcktes varavsaknaden av skyltar vilket försvårar orienteringen på Högskolan i Gävles område. Detpåvisades även att kontrastmarkeringarna för skolans entréer var slitna, liksombristfällig belysning. Resultaten visar att Högskolan i Gävle behöver vissaförbättringsåtgärder för att få skolan tillgänglig för alla. Avgränsningar som gjorts istudien är att det är enbart de tolv största entréerna på skolan som undersökts och attsvårigheten att hitta testpersoner till laborationen medförde att den fick utföras av osssjälva.

Abstract [en]

From a former study, regarding the accessibility for persons with reduced mobility, itwas recommended that a similar study regarding the accessibility for persons withorientation disabilities should take place. The aim of this study is to investigate if theentrances of the University of Gävle are accessible for persons with orientationdisabilities. The inventory of the study is based on BBR’s accessibility chapter and itscommon advice. In the study, twelve of the entrances at the University of Gävle wereexamined. The study also presents proposals to change the entrances in form of floorplans to illustrate how to make them accessible. The study also includes an estimatedcost for the whole change. In the study, a laboratory and an interview with theaccessibility coordinator of the Community of Gävle also occur. The result of the studyshowed that the entrances of the University of Gävle have flaws with the accessibilityfor persons with orientation disabilities. One of the main problems that was discoveredwas the lack of signs which makes the orientation more difficult. Another problem thatwas discovered was the condition of the contrast markings. They were all worn. It wasalso observed that the lightning of the building was inadequate. The results show thatthe University of Gävle has some improvements to do, to get the school accessible foreveryone. Delimitations that have been done to this study is that there are only thetwelve main entrances that have been examined. It was also difficult to find test personswith orientation disabilities to the experiment. Therefore, we performed the experiment.
