Highlights tour

Take a tour of Manchester Art Gallery

Manchester Art Gallery
Sunday 15 July 2018, 2pm–3pm

Join one of our brilliant volunteer guides for a tour of the gallery. Find out more about art on display, the building and the history of the gallery. Every guide designs their own tour, so each tour is slightly different depending on the personality and interests of the guide. Tours take place every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The guided tour on July 15th will feature live subtitles making it accessible to people who are d/Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.

The subtitles are being provided as part of a research project at the University of Roehampton, which is exploring how subtitles can be used to widen the access available at live events. Two respeakers will be using speech recognition software to create subtitles in real-time, which will be projected onto tablets, which are yours to use as you move through the galleries. The subtitles on the news and sports shows are created in a similar way.

Your feedback on the subtitles and the access they provide is really important to us. At the end of tour we will be giving out a questionnaire to everyone who attends.

We’ll also be running a post-tour discussion, where you’ll be able to share your feedback and ask any questions you have. This discussion will be subtitled and BSL interpreted. Attending is optional, but we would love to see you there.

Please contact Zoe Moores directly to find out more and to reserve your tablet (numbers are limited).
