What Is An Audio Described Touch Tour? 

An audio described touch tour is a tour of an exhibit that combines audio or verbal description of visual objects with the tactile experience of touching the art (when permissible) or replicas, facsimiles or other props that assist visitors who are blind or visually impaired as well as other tactile learners in forming a fuller impression of the materials.

The describer provides imagery using detailed language, but does not interpret the material.  In a gallery or museum setting, some interpretive information may be included if provided by the curator or artist, but the tour is intended to give comparable access to the art as would be available to any other visitor.
