BindiMaps is now installed in Vision Australia’s NSW Head Office in Parramatta. This means VA clients, visitors and staff who are blind or vision impaired can easily find their way around the building independently.
Parramatta is the second VA office BindiMaps has covered, with Gosford coming online in November 2018.
The office is around 2,000 square metres of space and includes conference and meeting rooms, the Vision Store where clients can try out and purchase assistive technology and aids, a children’s playroom, clinics, a dog run and low vision services.
All locations in the office can now be accessed via BindiMaps, giving users the ability to reach them independently using easy-to-follow voice directions.
The installation means that clients, visitors and staff can see BindiMaps in action and have a chance to download the app ahead of using it in other locations where it’s available.
It’s also a great opportunity for them to provide feedback on the app. BindiMaps welcomes feedback from users, and is very pleased to be taking advice and assistance from the VA team as we improve the app.
