A basic app can be downloaded onto a smartphone or tablet to make the exhibition more accessible for visitors who are hearing impaired and d/Deaf by providing transcripts of the parts of the exhibition which contain audio.
The app provides information about the exhibition, information about the Visitor Centre, and the Richard III Walking Trail around Leicester. The app also provides additional content about certain areas of the exhibition.
Situate software has been used to create the app. This software and the app are free to download and take up approximately 75MB. Visitors can log into our public WiFi to do this, go to the WiFi settings on your device:

2. Open the Situate app and then find and select the King Richard III Visitor Centre from the list of attractions.
3. When the Visitor Centre page shows, select Install. You can then use the app and browse the content.
