The Disability Rights Movement is an interactive exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institute. Based on the exhibition's touch-screen kiosk, the web page lets users navigate through the various sections via mouse. Once inside a section, users interact with multimedia used to tell the story of the disability rights movement. Clicking on an image presents it in a larger format, with detailed description in both text and audio.
Individual exhibits cover topics ranging from self definition to mobility and technology, and some exhibits provide video in addition to the images, audio and text. With such a wide variety of accessible content, the Smithsonian tells the story of America's disability rights movement in a powerful and compelling way.
