Out Loud is The Andy Warhol Museum’s inclusive audio guide. Learn about the life and art of pop artist Andy Warhol through different stories and a variety of voices, such as scholars, curators, and members of Warhol’s family.

Out Loud is designed to be inclusive of users across abilities. For users who are blind or have low vision, the app is screen reader-optimized and offers enlargeable text. At the museum, Out Loud uses bluetooth low-energy beacons to show visitors stories based on their location. Also onsite, narrated guided tactile experiences guide visitors through tactile reproductions of a selection of Warhol artworks for visitors to understand their composition through touch.
