Abstract

In recent years, with the continuous development of the socio-economic landscape and the increasing awareness of the general public, more and more people have begun to pay attention to the visually impaired community as a special group. However, at the current stage, individuals with visual impairments still encounter multiple barriers when participating in social public activities or visiting museums and exhibition halls. This article aims to integrate the concept of accessible design with emerging interactive technologies. By designing comprehensive pathways and incorporating sensory elements such as auditory, tactile, and temperature sensations, we employ a synesthetic approach to provide the visually impaired community with a holistic understanding of the exhibited items. The integration of interactive art installations with the concept of accessibility is put into practical design, allowing individuals with visual impairments to have opportunities to experience cultural life.
