Project Vision

Integrated signs for both blind and sighted audiences open the Calais museum’s 19th century sculpture room to all. A Braille and audio handrail describes the floor plan and collection to blind audiences, who are permitted to “see” the sculptures with their hands. Photo sensors on the rail trigger audio descriptions that describe the sculptures and their characteristics for all visitors.
