Hey James,

Thanks for the article - as we're discovering the considerations for truly accessible kiosk are complex.  Did you read that the ROM is designing a "tactile map which will be available so that people who have vision loss or blind can feel the layout"

Fascinating stuff!!  

Enjoy the weekend!  Vicki

Hi James, 

I came across this page on the Ontario government (MCSS) website and thought I should share with you:

Hi all, 

Alison and I spent time today at the ROM with a blind museum visitor who related his insights about museum experience and kiosk accessibility to us. I've put up our notes here:
