Here’s an innovative tool to break down sensory barriers making cultural and artistic heritage accessible to all, even to visually impaired people. NearIT presents the app HearIT.
Making the artistic and historic heritage available for everyone it’s a proof of a civil and modern country. Offering indiscriminately to everyone the chance to enjoy the art and the archeology with no limits or barriers it’s now a purpose that should be common. After the collaboration with Rotary Club in Friuli we developed a product that could be used by any museum, gallery, exhibition temporary or permanent to raise the accessibility even for people with visual deficit: we present you HearIT.
The app for every museum
HearIt is a simple and versatile tool suitable for every exhibition space. It has been specifically developed to make easier the life of those who manage the museum preparation and of those who, affected by visual deficit, too often cannot visit properly the museums with the tools offered. We are not talking about blind people but the ones with visual problem, like aged people or partially sighted. Because of the global progressively ageing population, the numbers of partially sighted people is substantially increased: now are almost 1 million. For all those the poor material now available, like the Braille cards, is absolutely not suitable because are tool that they don’t know how to use. Therefor the main need is to offer something flexible and easy to use, that doesn’t require a particular knowledge to be used.
