In recognition of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (this Thursday, May 21), the fourth webinar in our Tag Everything series focuses on accessibility for the 21st century. This webinar features three panelists who discuss the future of WayAround in public spaces and on manufactured products, electronics, and appliances:
  • Neva Fairchild, National Aging and Low Vision Specialist, American Foundation of the Blind
  • Paul Parravano, Co-Director of Government and Community Relations, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Charlie Warren, Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist, Carroll Center for the Blind

Neva, Paul, and Charlie chat with WayAround co-founder Darwin Belt and C.O.O. Jessica Hipp about how the technology is being used in museums, universities, and other public settings.

How Can You Help Expand Accessibility for the 21st Century?

WayAround relies on our community of users, teachers, and distributors to promote this technology in public spaces and with manufacturers. We are working with museums, universities, schools for the blind, manufacturers, micro markets, and other public spaces—many of these connections were initiated by a WayAround user.

If you would like to introduce us to a facility that would benefit from WayAround, please email us at connect@WayAround.com.

If you are a VRT, COMS, AT specialist, or any other type of teacher—we’d love to support you in recommending WayAround to your students and/or clients.
