Museum AD Survey – University of Westminster (UK)

Here is a good opportunity for audio describers to help the development of audio description and promote his or her work. Let us all participate!

The University of Westminster is collaborating with VocalEyes and Louise Fryer, UK, to evaluate the use of Audio Description in Museums. Very little research has been carried out to explore Museum AD, and what might make for an enjoyable, immersive and memorable experience. Through evaluation of these factors, the research will consider the potential for AD to enhance the experience of sighted people also, thereby exploring AD as a tool for inclusive design.

There are many aspects of Museum AD that this project could evaluate; the question is, which are the most important, and why. To this end, we are seeking the views and experiences of practitioners to help identify where the project research effort and resources should be focused.

This survey is being distributed globally, with the aim that methodologies and opinions on Museum AD will be gathered from describers around the world, and then shared within the AD community.

There is the option to include your email address in the survey if you would like to receive a summary of the research findings when complete.
