Museums, Visitor Centers, Zoos, Aquariums
Audio Description Solutions (ADS) provides audio description services for a wide variety of cultural organizations including: museums, aquariums, zoos, National Park visitor centers, and historic sites.
Appreciation of an exhibit for sighted visitors comes from a combination of seeing the visual presentations and reading the information which provides context for the visuals. Audio description provides an audio version of those same visuals and written information for people who are blind or low vision.
Audio Description Solutions works with staff to determine:
- Length of tour
- Visual material to be described
- Written material to be included
- Delivery method: handheld device, smartphone application, or beacon
- Schedule of delivery of audio description
