“This is a really good idea, an app from Enabled City for accessible, editable route maps in London, aimed at people with physical and learning disabilities, as well as people speaking English as a second language. That means step-free routes for people using wheelchairs, and photos taken along each route to aid navigation”.
Jonathan Waite, Customer Services Manager
“The Club is constantly looking at ways in which it can enhance the matchday experience for fans. We believe that offering the PhotoRoute service will ease navigation in and around White Hart Lane for all supporters, especially those with disabilities.”
Julie Fleck OBE, Advisor on the Paralympics, London 2012 Unit at the Greater London Authority
The GLA was a delighted to collaborate with Enabled City on this project. The flexible nature of this small, innovative company allowed us to complete this project in an efficient timescale without compromising its quality or content. It is always a pleasure to work on projects like this, that benefit such a wide audience and showcase how the Greater London Authority is helping to make the South Bank, and London, a more accessible and inclusive place”.
Suzanne Mantell, Visitor Services Manager at VisitBrighton
“We are delighted to be working with PhotoRoute and view the new walking maps as a very important addition to our information on accessible Brighton. We are sure they will inspire confidence in all visitors that Brighton is a city that can cater for all degrees of mobility, and one that can offer a quality experience to all visitors”.
Margaret Howart, Head of Patient Experience, Homerton Hospital
“Commissioning a PhotoRoute map is as easy as turning on a switch: they provided the map then arranged local and external learning disability groups to test our map, then updated the map – we only had to add it to our site once which is straight forward. An additional benefit has been making connections with people with learning disabilities who have expertise in accessible Health information. This map gives us confidence that our services are accessible to people with learning disabilities, visitors new to disability and those speaking English as a second language”.
