Accessibility for People with Blindness, Visual Impairment or Mobility Disability
Israeli company and app: Step-Hear is an audio-guide wayfinding system for blind and visually impaired people. It works indoors, outdoors, and on public transportation. It assists people with mobility disabilities to remove some obstacles in their daily activities.
The system combines a free application (or personal wrist-activator) that automatically activates Step-Hear’s unique audio signs.
If you know of any entities that could supply or distribute Step-Hear in Australia or New Zealand, we would love to learn about them and connect them with Step-Hear in Israel.
