Accessibility for Museum Digital Experiences

Accessibility for Museum Digital Experiences


Thanks to ever-improving technology, museums are offering more interactive experiences than ever before, but many of these exhibits remain inaccessible to people with disabilities. With new federal mandates requiring museums to provide equitable access and resources for all people, the time is now for museum designers to step it up and make digital experiences for all.
The Statue of Liberty Museum sets new benchmarks for making museums more inclusive. In this talk, the museums exhibit designers will present a case study for creating interactive and digital experiences that are accessible for the widest range of people. They will cover best practices, and accessibility innovations that must be considered for public experiences.
