Abstract

The Tower of London is a 1000-year-old fortress with many access challenges for D/deaf and disabled visitors. The purpose of this project was to enhance access through non-traditional means using digital technologies. We performed background research, distributed a survey, and conducted accompanied tours to help us determine the best technologies to increase access. From our findings we recommend 3D printed models, Signly, and Virtual Reality be implemented at the Tower. The implementation of these recommended technologies at the Tower of London would greatly improve accessibility for D/deaf and disabled individuals.
