Accessibility in museums

Barrier-free Tourism

There are 1 billion people with disabilities all over the world, accounting for 15% of the total population. So for museums not to be accessible is not only excluding nearly a fifth of the population but potentially missing out on much-needed revenue. Despite a robust disability rights movement and a shift towards inclusion, disabled people still experience significant difficulties when visiting museums. 

Barrier-free Tourism

Museums for the future generation should consider sustainability and social inclusion. In order to make this, Dot has been researching the technology for the accessible museum. It would promote barrier-free access for all cultural collections in terms of the people with hearing, visual, and physical impairment.

Creating a barrier-free cultural experience

  • Audio function is available for the elder.

  • Braille Keypad for checking information such as number, price, name, etc.

  • Display shows sign language and text script.

  • The automatic adjusting height kiosk senses the height of the user with the object sensor.

This barrier-free Information board can display all the essential explanations in museum through sound, graphics, and text.

This tactile graphic display shows the shape of the sculpture and picture in the museum. The blind and visually impaired feel the work of art via their fingertips.
