As well as trying out the National Waterfront Museum's accessible tools, you can also explore the Achievers Gallery with a recently produced tactile booklet. Working closely with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), all gallery text featured has been made fully accessible to those with visual impairment. Tactile images have been created from photographs by removing certain elements of the picture to simplify it and each panel has been converted into braille.
