The iOS app "Eye to Ear- Gallery of Audible Images" combines sound design, verbal description and interaction on the iPad. It broadens accessibility to cultural events by enhancing the experience of blind and visually impaired individuals. In addition, the app creates a new intuitive and exciting approach to paintings, drawings and photographs for people with no visual impairment. The key is the combination of linguistic description, a sophisticated interaction and sound design, which allows users to explore individual zones acoustically. The synthesis of language and sounds opens up a much broader spectrum of cognition and intuition than simple description alone. The app is based on Verena Blöchls and Katharina Götzendorfers research on inclusion and the Bank Austria Kunsforum Wien participated as content partner with curative expertise as part of the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition.
