Digital Signage Wayfinding for the deaf and blind.

By | July 21, 2009

We all know and can appreciate the visual and audible experience when we encounter a digital sign, however an organisation has created a way finding solution for both deaf and blind people.

Our initial thoughts where of Map Quest for the blind and deaf, with directions being so precise and designed for pedestrians making it ideal for anyone who is visually impaired.

It works like this…

Any blind person can access the maps via their mobile phone or alternatively download them to their MP3 player. The map includes a starting land mark and an ending land mark.

The idea is to develop the database so deaf, deaf/blind and travellers can use this technology to find their way around.
