For the first time in Europe, a visioguide in three sign languages is presented in a museum always at the forefront of accessibility issues. The guide is made by Educateam (Museum at scale) in collaboration with FFSB (Fédération Francophone des Sourds de Belgique), the non-profit organization Art et Culture and Samsung, with the support of the King Baudouin Foundation (Elia Fund).
The visioguide covers a selection of 21 works from the Musée Magritte Museum, explained in three sign languages: French-speaking Belgian, Dutch and international. The tablets allow deaf people to visit the museum autonomously. The subtitles in French, Dutch and English also make a suitable approach to the general public and can be used by children, adults, families and tourists.
