ClickAndGo Wayfinding Maps
The premier source for indoor and outdoor narrative route maps for blind and deafblind travelers.
ClickAndGo Wayfinding Maps is a new and fully accessible narrative mapping service. It is modeled after the often-used "directions" feature of Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, and MapQuest. With those services, sighted users make their selections for a starting point and destination from a drop-down menu of landmarks, and then click "GO" for driving directions. We have taken this information model, compiled additional adaptations that meet the specific needs of the blind and deafblind, and are now able to provide non-sighted travelers with customized "mobility-friendly" walking directions.
ClickAndGo Wayfinding Maps render public facilities such as schools, airports, and hotels accessible to blind and deafblind travelers down to a level of detail that is unparalleled by any other service or technology today. We uniquely specialize in providing state-of-the-art indoor wayfinding directions. We also provide customized narrative walking directions for outdoor landmark-to-landmark route travel. These directions can be downloaded from our fully accessible website, or can be easily obtained by using our voice activated technology with a standard telephone.
ClickAndGo Wayfinding Maps information is free to blind and deafblind users, and is provided by participating institutions. The accessibility it affords furthers compliance with ADA regulations, enables non-sighted travelers to expand their sphere of independence, and provides an entirely new level of service and information that blind and deafblind travelers deserve to receive.
ClickAndGo Wayfinding Maps differ significantly from current global positioning systems (GPS), satellite, and street view technologies in the following ways:
- We provide step-by-step walking route information in easily “accessible” auditory and tactile formats.
- We are unique in providing step-by step “indoor” wayfinding guidance.
- All of our route directions are prepared by mobility specialists, incorporating terminology, technique recommendations, and landmarking cues that are exclusively intended to assist blind travelers.
- Unlike GPS technology, our service requires no special equipment or purchase. It is free for all users with an internet connection, telephone, or cellphone.
In short, there is no other service available that can provide this level of quality wayfinding guidance to blind and deafblind travelers.
