Guidebox has been developed for blind or visually impaired mobile phone users.
Developments in mobile screen reader technologies have allowed blind or visually impaired people to take advantage of most of the functions that a modern mobile phone has to offer.
Guidebox provides a service that enables those with a visual impairment to quickly and easily get building access information on their mobile phone.
Many public buildings can be large, confusing and difficult for anyone to find their way around. The Guidebox service aims to empower visually impaired users to approach and access unfamiliar public buildings on their own, with confidence, and without having to make an appointment.
This service uses a combination of text messages, mobile internet pages and audio files to allow the user to retrieve this information.
Guidebox has been developed in response to the lack of available location-based information for the visually impaired.
