Mobile app for the hearing-impaired: a video guide of The State Russian Museum

The State Russian Museum is the world’s largest collection of Russian art and is housed in a unique architectural complex in the historical center of St Petersburg.

Challenge

The State Russian Museum has launched a project to develop a mobile app that will provide a video guide for the deaf and those with some level of hearing loss. The app, which uses sign language, will make it possible for people with a hearing impairment, to independently explore the museum’s exposition.

Solution

First Line Software is the technology partner for the project and developed the mobile app for this video guide.

Results

By downloading the app, users will access an interactive map of the museum’s exhibits along with a video guide which uses sign language to communicate the exhibit details. The app will be available for both Android and iOS devices.
