Jingru Yin

The 2nd visit with UCP

  • Not all the wheelchair can fit the height of interactive table, so museum can provide additional screen on the side or device like ipad.
  • Some disable people cannot double click or hold and drag the picture to their design space on the screen, it can add function like just hold it.
  • The height of the red sofa on the entrance hall is too low, hard for disable people to rest.
  • The elevator is so invisible hardly to find, also you should open and hold the door, get in and close the door, it’s so hard for disable people. Even they have another white elevator, that one is ok, but need time to find, and for the first time visit, it’s hard to notice.
  • The height of the text are almost fine for most people, but some of them are too small. For some disable they cannot read, museum can provide device to read for them.
  • About 40% disable they don’t have smart phone.
  • In the Processing Lab, the height of the table can be lower down a little bit, it’s hard for wheelchair people to get the card.
  • The desk on the third floor, can be put a little further from each other, so wheelchair can easily go through. But it is light weight, easy for power wheelchair to move.
  • For the interactive pen, good things are, it’s heavy and big so easy to hold, it have wristband to provide drop, the whole cone pen point is electric so more opportunity for disable to touch the screen. Bad things are,  the collect button is hard for some of them to press, can change to a round shape. Some disable will interactive much better using their finger rather than the pen.
