Audio Description

Audio description helps increase access for blind and visually impaired visitors to the Whitworth. When working from home, the visitor team expanded the gallery’s existing audio description offer (Soundcloud) by creating a number of guides to popular artworks from the Whitworth collection. Two examples of these audio-description guides are published here in accessible audio and video formats.
