From the link at the end of this article:-

‘BLIND and partially sighted people will be able to appreciate some of York’s attractions better under a new scheme by York Archaeological Trust (YAT) and York Blind and Partially Sighted Society.

‘Visually impaired inspectors will visit YAT’s centres at Barley Hall, Richard III Experience in Monk Bar, Jorvik Viking Centre and DIG and report on how improvements can be made to help those with poor or no sight.

‘Jen Jackson, community engagement Manager for YAT said: “This partnership is part of our continuing commitment to be aware of the accessibility of our attractions.”

‘Caroline Robertson, outreach manager of York Blind and Partially Sighted Society said “With over 6,000 people living in York with sight loss it is important that we ensure local people can enjoy learning about their city’s past in an accessible environment.

“We are pleased to be involved in this project.” ‘
