British Museum Introduces BSL Guide

With an international audience of six million visitors each year, the British Museum is always seeking to find new ways to engage visitors from around the world with the collection. The new Multimedia Guide made possible by sponsorship from Korean Air is now available in British Sign Language.

The BSL guide features over 220 signed videos of objects from the Museum’s collections. This comprehensive offer establishes the British Museum as a leader in innovative interpretation, interactive learning and accessible digital media.

The guide uses a portable touchscreen device, the XP Vision, made by Antenna Audio, which has been a leading provider of audio and audio visual interpretation to museums, exhibitions, historic sites and visitor attractions around the world for the past 20 years. The BSL guide is free of charge to users.

There are some BSL videos within the schools project page on the main British Museum site as follows:
