Smartphone Apps for Travelers Living with Disability

As the holiday season approaches and COVID numbers in Australia decrease, domestic travel is on the rise. For people with disability and their carers, the following five apps may help you get around this Summer.

  • Magnuscards – is a game-based learning app that helps people with autism, ADHD, Down syndrome, dementia and other cognitive special needs prepare for new experiences and build confidence. It has an entire section on travel-related experiences and allows you to create tailored card decks for specialised tasks.
  • Where is Public Toilet – finding a public toilet can be a matter of urgency in a new location. This handy app provides a map based on your location that shows all the public toilets around you, taking the stress out of exploring.
  • DH Chat – allows deaf and hearing people to communicate face-to-face without the use of a sign language interpreter. Using a speech to text translation system and Bluetooth, communication is fast, simple and doesn’t need WIFI or data.
  • Braci – uses the phone’s microphone to listen to sounds that might be important, such as fire alarms and doorbells, and then alerts the user through vibration and visual cues. Handily, it can also be customised to identify specific sounds.
  • Seeing AI – is an iOS app designed for people who are blind or experience low vision. It uses the phone’s camera to create an audible narration of what it ‘sees’. It can be used to provide descriptions of scenes, read text, differentiate colours, identify currency and can be even programmed to recognise specific people.
