This platform helps people with disabilities see how accessible places are
A web development project is enabling people with disabilities to check out how accessible various places are.
Called AXSMap, it has been designed by filmmaker Jason DaSilva who has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair. He often faced difficulty getting into areas that were located up a flight of stairs and wanted to find a way to make sure such information was easily available online.
AXS Map is a platform available for the web as well as virtual reality systems Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR. It allows users to log accessibility details and virtually visit a space prior to physically arriving there. With this, users don't have to worry about how to get into a place they need to visit and can plan beforehand.
