Visitors to El Born Cultural Centre, which opened last September, can now request accessible mobile guides. These have been developed using GVAM technology. They perform the same functions as audio and traditional sign language guides, with the advantage that they integrates video and audio and they offer different options depending on the particular needs of the public.
