Have the various ways that people use their senses been taken into account in our exhibitions, events and other services?
Everyone benefits from information gained through their various senses. It is fascinating to explore museum objects by touch, or to go onstage before a performance and feel the set up. Information is available to more people if it can be both looked at and listened to. Clear signs and information texts written in large, easily readable fonts help everybody. Technical devices, such as induction loops, help to avoid exclusion. Interpreting services, for instance, sign language and audio descriptions, also make services more accessible.
