We believe information should be accessible to everyone, regardless of age, social status, or disability.
Our public information screens are intrinsically accessible to all, as they don’t require a smartphone or any special computer skills to use. We encourage placing them in areas with the highest possible foot traffic in order to maximize visibility.
We are at the forefront of developing technology for making digital screens accessible to blind and low-vision users. Using Google’s Physical Web technology, TransitScreen displays can be broadcast to anyone with a smartphone. We’re piloting this technology in seven locations in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in combination with the City of Cambridge and the Cambridge Commission on Persons with Disabilities. We’ve shared some of the lessons we learned from accessibility testing, too.
