Enabling Blind enjoy art exhibitions and displays with an iPad App

Students from the University of Kent at Canterbury, along with the youngsters from the VI Centre at The Charles Dickens School in Broadstairs, are creating a new iPad App -- which will enable visually impaired or partially sighted people enjoy art exhibitions and displays.

How the ipad App works:

The iPad programme gives vivid descriptions of each picture and adds sounds such as sea, wind or birdsong to conjure up an atmosphere of the work.
The App is already tested and both the researchers and those who used it are delighted with the results.
