The disability organisation that provides City College Norwich’s Detailed Access Guides has launched a brand new mobile App which aims to transform the quality and availability of accessibility information.
The App is available free for IoS and Android; users can create a profile, save their favourites and set their own preferences using AccessAble’s Accessibility Symbols.
The App provides Detailed Access Guides to tens of thousands of places across the UK and Ireland. These Guides aren’t personal reviews, but step by step descriptions of what accessibility is like at a particular place – they are 100% facts, figures and photographs. Crucially each Guide is created having been visited by an AccessAble Surveyor, who can collect over 1,000 pieces of information for just one venue. The type of information collected is all driven by AccessAble’s 35,000 strong user community.
As part of the launch AccessAble have published a survey that revealed that 99% of disabled people want to know about accessibility before visiting a new place and 98% search for accessibility information in advance. You can read more about it and check out the survey here https://www.accessable.co.uk/articles/new-survey-highlights-major-accessibility-gap-for-uk-s-20-million-disabled-people-and-carers
