Audio Description Services for Museums

The visually impaired (VI) may seldom take part in museum visits. This venture aims to provide blind and people with low vision with professional audio description (AD) tours for museums so that the number and quality of their visits to museums can be increased.
This service provides VI not only with more opportunities to get access to museum exhibits but also more social interaction with describers, companions and other visitors through which a more socially inclusive community can be built. VI will be hired as Description Quality Evaluators and members of the underprivileged groups will be recruited as helpers and companions.

視障人士可能不常參觀博物館。本項目旨在為失明人士和弱視人士提供關於博物館展品的專業口述影像服務,以便提升他們參觀博物館的次數和質素。
這項創先河的服務不僅讓視障人士欣賞博物館展品,同時也為他們提供了與口述影像員、同行者以至其他參觀者互動的機會,有助建立了一個共融社區。本項目會聘請視障人士擔任口述影像質量評估員,並會招募弱勢社群擔任助理和同行者陪同視障人士。
