Research: • 61 individuals with disabilities • 44 cultural institutions • 9 access organizations Individuals skewed towards blind/low vision and we saw a drop off in some answers. More to come…..
Museums and Mobile
Museums and Mobile • 35% museums considering converting from audioguides to smartphones. • 38% say they are offering mobile devices with access features.
Smartphones & Everyday life • Device ownership by individuals –disabled population aligns with everyone. • 60% iPhones, 31% Android phones/tablets and 25% iPads. • Complex array of daily tasks – wayfinding, social, paying bills etc. • 65-69% have used audioguide or smartphone to visit.
Museums and Access • Majority of museums provide access programs and in a variety of ways– 93%. • Challenges: Dispersed information, ambient noise, exterior locations, complex spaces, busy environments. Photo of Annie Leist at MFA Boston (courtesy of NYTimes)
Museums and Access • 1/3 of individuals come to a museum once a month and 1/3 once a year. • Spend significant time at museums – come regularly and spend 1-2 hours (64%) or longer.
Mobile Interpretation and Access • Individuals with disabilities highly rated learning and sharing – customization also important. • No one approach fits all, “If a device with the screen is used, then the screen should be legible to people of all vision levels, unless an alternative is provided.” • Museums considering mobile are hindered by funding and uncertain mobile strategy.
• Voiceover • Guided access • Hearing aid support • Magnify mode • Inverted mode • Assistive touch • Switch control Device accessibility features
• Web (App) content • Hybrid Apps • Native Apps Developer quick tips
Apple VoiceOver : Demo Tutorial
CONTENT AND FUNCTIONALITIES Current Practices Screen readers and Text to Speech Adjustable Font Sizes Transcripts Verbal Description Audio Verbal Description Video Captions Signed Videos Navigation/Geofencing QR/NFC/AR/IR UI/Design Multisensory
Screen readers • Full screen reader in device settings/out of the box & app functionality. • Text to Speech API’s part of app software/native apps. • Most used smartphone technology (72%) but apps have to be optimized; many museum apps don’t currently work with them.
Text Control and Magnification Current Practices • Ability to adjust size of text with either a pinch/zoom or toggle button. • Audio or label text for visitors who are deaf or low-vision use with TTS/screen reader functionality. • Adjustable text sizes highly rated feature (41%).
MEDIA- AUDIO+ VIDEO DESCRIPTIONS • Visual descriptions are highly most highly rated interpretation (77%), then technical information about the work. • Opinions from the public are least important.
MEDIA: VIDEO Current Practices • Videos captions for the deaf users are also useful for everyone in noisy environments. • Sign languages are not static languages, the same idea can be expressed in multiple ways.
WAYFINDING Navigation/ Geofencing 74% of adult Americans use phone for geo-location info (PEW14). GPS, AR, turn by turn or sensory. QR/NFC/IR – potential but ‘point and click’ problematic at close range. Wearable technology – Google Glass, Orcam.
