Technology Helps People who are Blind to 'See' Art



this is how you feel art here these exhibitions show different ways to help the impaired enjoy the works on display by creating images in order to produce 3d art of our big focuses now is on accessibility as part of our focus on diversity equity inclusion and accessibility and sometimes it being accessible means translating things into different sensory realms so can you make something visible for people who don't who have hearing impairments can you make something touchable for people who have visual impairments members of the National Federation of the blind tried out the three-dimensional images that feature raised subjects and varying textures very often when we go to museums we see glass enclosures with nothing for us there's no there's no way for us to experience what our sighted counterparts experience and this kind of is an equalizer for us the technology was developed by 3d Photoworks we've developed a technology that converts any two-dimensional image in a painting drawing collage photograph satellite view to a three-dimensional tactile image he says people with sight enjoy the images too from a museum's position it's growing what they call the dwell tons for both the blind and decided the sighted are spending more time learning about a visual than they would if it were just a photograph the displays include a war scene musical art painting and a historical painting as well as a campus map this model I think is more reflective of even the more functionality of this tool as this technology as opposed to just art rendering because this actually has a functional use so this one right here I can read in Braille and and see that it has a specific meaning that this is a street so the street has this texture and this button also there's audio representation of it as well for the visually impaired the technology helps them to be part of something they could not see before see evolving technology really is about inclusion it really is about making us a part of the world in which we live Deborah Bloch VOA news
