Access to Places seeks to make NYC subway stations accessible to people who are blind by leveraging iOS's native text-to-speech voiceover technology to offer entry and exit information, service changes, safety updates, train arrival times, and other key details within a mobile application. The informational content is complemented by beacon-triggered notifications to allow travelers to more easily navigate themselves within complicated station layouts.
