The WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) has developed an impressive mobile system to enhance the experience for visitors to cultural institutions who are blind, deaf, hard-of-hearing or who speak languages other than English. The innovative technology from NCAM, dubbed “Media Access Mobile,” provides synchronized text and/or audio description in any combination of languages, all provided simultaneously, over a WiFi network and displayed on commercially available handheld devices (which can be provided to visitors on-site). Watch Media Access Mobile (MAM) in action in a new brief video. Contact email@example.com to learn more.
