AACT was a partner, alongside the Museum of English Rural Life and Reading Voluntary Action, in this small pilot supported by an RSA Fellowship scheme.

It brought together people in the Reading area who have an interest in IT and communication disability. As a result, and through the generosity of Widgit Software Ltd, a student project to implement a social media system was able to use their symbol system designed to help people of all ages who have communication challenges.

This was used in early tests of various IT enabling access to museums. This pilot ran from Autumn 2010 with a project to embed the symbol system taking place over the Summer of 2011. iSay then moved into form the iMuse Programme.
