Audio Description

Audio described objects

Welcome to the Barnsley Museums object audio descriptions. Following training with VocalEyes members of the Barnsley Museums team chose their favourite object from the unique collections of The Cooper Gallery, Experience Barnsley and Cannon Hall Museum. Each staff member then wrote a script which was checked by Vocal Eyes before recording their own audio description. We will be adding more audio descriptions to this playlist in the future.
