Study on the accessibility of museums to visually impaired people

Study on the accessibility of museums to visually impaired people

Our strongest desire is to support our clients in their mission to welcome people with disabilities. And to ensure that our solutions always perfectly meet the needs and uses of these audiences, we spend a lot of time meeting with them. It is in this context that we launched a study in July 2021 on the use of museums by visually impaired people in France.

This questionnaire included 15 questions on the following themes: their habits of visiting museums, their opinion on the tools made available for their accessibility, the obstacles encountered, and of course some demographic data to better know them. The study is based on 53 respondents and therefore in relation to the population our sample allows us to validate hypotheses at 90% with a margin of error of 11%. We present here the main results of this survey as well as the resulting analysis.
