Indiana State Museum App for People with Visual Impairments

Information courtesy of the Indiana State Museum

The Indiana State Museum has launched a new app designed for people who are blind or have visual impairments. The Indiana State Museum Guide includes an audio tour guide to artifacts and interactive exhibits, with descriptions of each stop on the tour. Audio instructions and floor guides create guideposts which make it easier for visitors to navigate the museum. The app even calls out any potential obstacles, obstructions or changes in flooring.

In addition to people with disabilities, the app may also be useful for seniors, children who are unable to read yet, or anyone who prefers to listen than read.

The app is available for Android and iOS. The museum also has iPods available for rent that are pre-loaded with the app.
