“Accessible?” is a platform for accessibility information where a business, service or event can create an accessibility statement – which is mandatory in Israel. Subsequently, the entity can be searched by accessibility-users (i.e. people with disabilities) by name, location, category, distance, or activity. The search results in a map or list, with ratings according to the user’s predetermined accessibility profile and featuring only relevant information with pictures.
For business, services, and events “Accessible?” will make accessibility accessible. “Accessible?” is a one-stop-shop for accessibility services adding value to businesses, cities, and clients; accessibility brings more customers, higher income, and better service and leaves all players better off.
Integrated beacon options add a marketing layer for the entity and guide people who are blind, or people with orientation difficulties, to safely find their way.
“Accessible?” will be the first universal, multi-lingual, trans-border tool, also accessible in terms of UI/UX, and covering the broad spectrum of accessibility-users: parents with strollers and young children, people with disabilities, and elderly people that adds a ton of value to both business entities and people who would otherwise be excluded.
Additionally to the huge social impact on the empowerment, inclusion, and independence of hundreds of millions of accessibility-users worldwide, “Accessible?” will create meaningful employment possibilities for people with disabilities and for people living in Israel’s southern periphery.
Why NegevWell, Arava. I happily see my kids growing up in Grofit, the Kibbutz we live. My husband runs several businesses in Eilat that reach all over southern Israel and we're here to stay. Comment regarding the date of incorporation: "The 6th Sense" was established with the purpose of creating accessible vacations and we shifted only in April 2015 to create the platform we're applying here for.
