Accessibility for Museums Exhibits

This includes the provision of audio descriptions for visually impaired visitors, live captioning and sign language interpretation for those with hearing impairments, and tactile tours or touchable exhibits for a more hands-on experience. 

Museums may also opt for materials in braille, large print, or simplified language and ensure physical accessibility through ramps, elevators, and wheelchair-friendly layouts. These efforts are part of a broader commitment to inclusivity, ensuring that museums are welcoming and accessible to all visitors, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities.

Audio Description for Museums

Audio description in museums, parks, or exhibits is distinct from audio tours or docent-led tours. It specifically focuses on describing the physical aspects of objects, such as their size, shape, color, texture, and details, rather than discussing their history or creator. This type of tour guides visitors from one exhibit to another, enhancing the visual experience, especially for those with visual impairments. 

While some exhibits might allow tactile interaction, this is not a common feature, however, we help us make it possible to create complete museum accessibility services

Great final deliverable and great communication. We needed VTT files created from transcripts and their team did a wonderful job. We got a sample file early on to test and they delivered the full file set earlier than expected. I’d definitely recommend Captioning Star.
