The bespoke application was designed for deaf visitors to enable a museum experience without the support of a physical sign language interpreter. The application was pilot tested in the Pattichion Municipal Museum in Cyprus. Our findings showed high levels of user satisfaction and usefulness of the application in allowing deaf museum visitors to have an enjoyable tour, using their mobile devices as the only means of support.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9285||ISBN:||978-331948973-5||Rights:||© Springer International Publishing AG 2016.||Type:||Conference Papers|
