Samsung Level Headset Makes Jimi Hendrix Exhibit Accessible to All
March 20, 2015
To passersby, the Samsung Rock Exhibition held in São Paulo, Brazil, may have appeared to be a regular, run-of-the-mill show last Monday, July 6. Yet, had they taken a closer look, they might have seen that these 30 event attendees were actually a group of people who are visually impaired accompanied by Samsung volunteers, engaged in an open exchange of experiences and perspectives.
In the partnership with the Dorina Nowill Foundation, an organization dedicated to the social inclusion of people with visual impairments, Samsung paired company volunteers with Dorina participants. Together, they visited an exhibition about the life and work of Jimi Hendrix.
For this event, the foundation created the audio guide for the exhibition with support from Samsung. Also, Samsung volunteers provided training on how to use the Samsung Level headset, which is used as a digital docent.
