BillionAbles app for the disabled will launch in July
BillionAbles has announced the launch of a new app called BillionAbles, which is aimed at finding accessible places across India for the disabled.
The app will be available for Android users on Play Store from 3 PM on 8 July.
BillionAbles is a social startup founded by Sameer Garg, who became disabled after a spinal injury. The app aims to be India’s first Access Guide for people with special needs. The company’s website – www.billionables.com – lists more than a thousand disabled friendly places across India.
It lists accessible venues and services under categories such as Accessible Restaurants & Hotels, Accessible Shops & Malls, Accessible Entertainment Joints, Wellness, Disability Events, Public transport, Accessible tours, Accessible cabs, Accessible Washrooms, and Disabled Parking spaces.
People can look for places based on accessibility of ramps, lifts, elevators, step free access, braille and signage, sign language availability, assistance available, large print, and more.
