Accessibility Routing

Mapsted’s indoor positioning system fully supports accessibility routing. Because our technology doesn’t rely on the use of beacons, Wi-Fi, or additional external hardware, it dependably works anywhere, without interruption. This gives property managers the ability to:

  • Meet the navigation needs of all of their visitors or tenants
  • Provide inclusive, barrier-free access to their facilities
  • Improve safety and security, especially in emergency situations
  • Enhance customer experience, increasing client satisfaction and retention

Accessibility Features

Our flexible platform also allows users to customize their routes based on their individual accessibility needs.

When enabled, the provided routes avoid stairs, steps, and escalators, and use ramps or elevators to help the user navigate to their destination instead.

Our flexible platform also allows users to customize their routes based on their individual accessibility needs.

Colour and Display Adjustments

Mapsted’s colour and display adjustments include options for both high and dark contrast, to ensure on-screen information is easily accessible to everyone.

Audio Instructions

Using voice navigation allows users to hear contextual turn-by-turn directions to help them safely reach their desired destination.

Audio instructions help users stay aware of their surroundings, and provide them with additional information on points of interest along the route, as needed.

Speech-to-Text Search

A faster, more natural way to search for desired points of interest and destinations, our Speech-to-Text search option is easy to use and delivers highly accurate voice recognition capabilities.

Orientation Information

Providing detailed orientation information lets users know their current location in relation to their surroundings. For example, “You are approaching the elevators.” Orientation information always includes reference to features in the physical environment and along the route.
