Jeff Moyer, USA

Session: Real Access, Virtual Guides

Individuals with disabilities face barriers when seeking to interact with virtual and physical museums. Solutions to accessibility problems can provide an individualized experience for all visitors. The application of international standards can provide accessible web museums. Onsite, museum location-specific web portals will make the treasures of museums available to everyone in the manner and with the content they desire. Cutting edge technology will open both aspects of the museum experience to all visitors.
