What happens when you get to a museum and you can't hear the audio tour?
For Australians who are hard of hearing or Deaf, access to the audio tour and rich information is often not accessible.
In fact, many people may be so used to being without the audio tour that the arts has never been an interest.
New technology opens up opportunities for change.
By providing options on devices people use everyday such as iPhones and tablets, people can participate and enjoy a cultural experience.
OpenAccess Tours allows cultural venues to be accessible, so that the artistic, historical and cultural experiences are shared by all.
At participating venues, visitors can bring the app on their own phone or tablet to experience tours in their preferred language or content options.
Choices range from captions, Auslan, audio description and multiple languages. Simply download the OpenAccess Tours app, then download the venue's content stream to be part of the experience with family and friends.
There are now more than 20 exciting exhibitions which are accessible around Australia, including an accessible learning tool kit for school groups at Werribee Open Range Zoo!
Conexu is working with others to open the doors to many more!* Contact us for more information, or to recommend a venue near you.
