Beyond classic media: Accessibility and the exhibition text

Participants pinpointed a need to explore less classic media during last year’s session on the perfect exhibition text . The aim with exhibition text is both to improve a general audience experience while also improve accessibility for people with disabilities. How can texts be made more accessible? What are text alternatives to explain an exhibit, a scientific phenomenon or experiment? Can we skip all printed words and choose different paths to improve the visitor experience? Personal contact can help in understanding a subject, so should we focus more on explainers? Seven speakers will give short introductory presentations to provide talking points in this reverse session. Possible alternatives or tested solutions will be brought forward as case studies. A structured discussion on selected topics will follow.
