This session will feature interdisciplinary approaches to improving experiences for guests who are blind or have low vision, one of the fastest-growing disability groups. Often, as professionals, we tend to draw from the experiences or approaches of museums similar to our own to improve our accessibility offerings. In this session, we’ll look instead at ways museums have uniquely applied various accessibility approaches from other disciplines to their own specific settings to create better offerings for visitors who are blind and have low vision.
