Cork software firm teams up with cultural spaces to offer virtual tours

At Nano Nagle Place, broadcaster and musician, Evelyn Grant, was commissioned to provide the visually descriptive tour, making the site more accessible for those with visual impairment.

Cork software firm Digisoft has teamed up with Nano Nagle Place and the Crawford Art Gallery to offer virtual tours of the cultural spaces.

As a gesture to the Cork culture community, Digisoft created virtual tours of the museum and gallery that people can enjoy without being physically there.

The firm worked with Nano Nagle Place to develop their audio guide mobile app which enables experiences for visitors with extra vision or hearing requirements.
