Our navigation approach and our app are deeply grounded in research into independent travel for people with disabilities. For years we have led the development of the international and American standards for audio-navigation.
By defining how products should work and the ways consumers can interact with them, standards help systems become safer and trustworthy, driving confident user adoption.”
We are guided by the concept of nothing about us without us.
Waymap’s founders led development of ITU-T F.921 and CTA-2076, the first international and American standards for digital navigation for vision-impaired people. These standards have been shaped through intense research and consultation with blind and low-vision people.
Waymap’s support for and compliance with these standards is what drives our technological prowess and inclusively designed user experience.
This community-based approach ensures that our services continue to meet the true and demanding needs of all our users.
