Transfers into boats, pools, any transfer situation during your trip can be made safely when you use your ADAPTS.
The bathroom – the most complicated space while traveling. Rick Goldstein, from Arizona, United States, changed the ever recurring problem of not being able to have a shower, when the bathroom has a shower in the tub. Besides, using your own chair having a shower is not working either.

NEW SERVICE FOR (HOTEL) RESTAURANTS: THE AUDIO MENU
For all guests with a visual impairment, the menu is usually difficult to read, or most of the time, not at all
Using your visually attractive design menu is a great way to attract customers, however, you exclude people with disabilities who are not able to read the menu themselves.
The Accessible Travel Foundation has set up a new service to help you be inclusive in your menu service for all people who prefer to use an audio menu. Try this 3 course meal yourself:

Nobody is probably traveling without a smart phone in the 21st century. There are many apps to help you roam the planet. When you are traveling with a disability it is not quite the same.
We recommend the Welcome App when you travel in the UK or Ireland, to experience great customer services in all venues offering this Welcome service.
In South America the Lazarillo app was created, a wayfinding app for people who are blind or who have a visual impairment.
