Abstract:
We aimed to improve the information accessibility of museums based on the principles of “universal design” and “design for all.” Focusing on visitors who used sign language, we trained a curator to offer explanations via sign language to communicate scientific facts to visitors who were Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing (HOH). Demonstration training for hearing curators consists of observing the lecturer’s movements, dialogue with visitors, and consultation of teaching materials while listening to explanations. However, if trainees are persons with hearing impairment, they cannot observe the sign language interpreter, instructor’s movements, and teaching materials simultaneously. Consequently, trainees may overlook important explanations and dialogue with visitors. To address this problem, we recorded the lesson and created a video with captions for review. The materials can be operated on a tablet device, allowing trainees to study freely. We created two pieces of content, “shark eggs and sharkskin” and “human bone,” which were used in the aquarium and science museum, respectively. In this report, we describe the need for contents for visitors with hearing impairment in Section I and then introduce our related content for them and presents the reason to nurture curators who are sign language users with hearing impairment. Section III presents our curator training materials designed for trainees of sign language users who are Deaf or HOH. Lastly, we describe our future work.
