The Science Museum app for visitors with visual impairments
January 18, 2018

If you’re planning on visiting the Information Age gallery at London’s Science Museum, make sure you download the free Audio Eyes app first. Available for iOS phones or tablets, this neat appĀ unlocks audio descriptions of the environment, key objects, and tactile displays, and rather than guide the visitor, it responds to their movements around the gallery.

It works by picking up Bluetooth signals that automatically trigger audio notifications on your phone or tablet.

Click here to download the app for free and here to find out more about accessibility at the Science Museum.
