Re-opening heritage locations in a Covid-safe way is especially challenging in the case of digital interpretation. Major issues now arise over hand-held devices that have in the past been loaned to multiple visitors, and also the use of public touch-screens, kiosks, and other interactives. This workshop will look in a non-technical way at the wide range of digital technologies that are available, including Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and the pros and cons of each. It will focus on how you can use them to keep staff and visitors safe, including the opportunity for interpreters to migrate content onto alternative platforms. As we are all learning how to manage this ‘new normal’, the workshop will also seek to stimulate innovative ideas, with the guidance of AHI Corporate Member Neil Rathbone who is a professional technologist.
