An accessible audioguide for the exhibition "Museum to Scale"

In collaboration with researchers from UAntwerp, OPEN is conducting pilot studies on inclusive audio guides for museums, with specific attention for the blind and visually impaired.

In collaboration with users, experiments are organized with the aim of optimizing accessibility for people who are blind and visually impaired as well as for their companions. In this context, research is underway at the request of the Culture Commission of the UAntwerp, with Museum to Scale, an exhibition on the City Campus of UAntwerp (building R), the first results of which will be available in June 2020.

In addition, OPEN is making an inventory of initiatives and technologies that exist in Flanders that enable inclusive accessibility in museums, performing arts and live events.
