This mobile app enables the user to discover the original story of the Musee des Augustins and twenty of its masterpieces such as A Passing Conquest by Toulouse-Lautrec or Sultan Moulay Abd Er Rahman by Delacroix. Each artwork is presented through a text, an audio track and a high definition picture which you can enlarge to see details.

The app is available in French, English and Spanish.

For the deaf audience, a video in French sign language provides the same content as the audio track.

The user can also have access to an interactive map in which he will locate the artworks and information’s to plan his visit.

This app can be downloaded on smartphones or tablets with Google Play or Apple Store, for free.

This project was developed during a year with app developers (the Digidust company) and a deaf accessibility specialized company (Websourd). Several associations and deaf users were involved in the testing of the device to grant its accessibility.

This app was created in order to be improved along the way with more artworks.
