CRA’s work has opened several
National Museums to visually impaired visitors, with accessible itineraries
that are part of the general visit.

Our multisensory designs include accessible lecterns,floor paving,
and the Raynes Rail – the Braille and Audio Handrail System – which
provides multilingual audio commentaries. We also developed a
design vocabulary and manufacturing techniques for tactile graphics, maps, and orientation diagrams.
