What’s next for the Social Hub…?
We are very excited to be joined by the team from WeWALK. WeWALK was born from the lived experiences of visual impairment, the desire to feel safe and confident in your everyday lives, and the vision of ensuring that every visually impaired person has the freedom to go wherever they want to go. Every WeWALK feature is one that is used by the WeWALK team and one that will enhance the mobility of communities across the world.
When: March 4th, 2021 10:00 AM
Topic: The AT Social Hub: Introducing WeWALK! The Revolutionary Smart Cane and Smartphone App!
Register in advance for this webinar:
WeWalk is the perfect pairing for ultimate visually impaired mobility. WeWALK acts as a new handle when attached to any long cane and was designed to feel natural, allowing for normal cane usage. When walking, WeWALK vibrates to inform you of low-hanging obstacles that the bottom of a cane may typically miss, such as a sign or tree branch. Additionally, you can also pair your cane to the WeWALK app on your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth to make use of WeWALK’s smart features.
• Find Your Location
• Check Public transport
• Voice Assistant
• Voice alert to find your Smart Cane
The WeWALK Smartphone app is free to download on iOS and Android. The app allows the user to instantly access a new and revolutionary navigation experience. The app includes a low vision interface for maximum accessibility, clock-based directions, destination tracking, exploration and public transport features and you can access all of these features with the built in voice assistant.
We will be joined by Oğulcan Başkan (Global Expansion Manger), Joe Alfonso (Community Manager) and Jean Marc Feghali (UK R&D Lead).
As always, please do come armed with your questions and we will do our best to find the answers. Myself and the ‘2 Stuart’s’ will also be on hand to offer any guidance if required.
This session is also suitable for teachers, parents and assistive technology beginners.
“For most people, technology makes things easier. For those with a disability, it makes things possible!”
Now more than ever assistive technology is invaluable to those with sight loss, a visual impairment or learning disability. We have a solution that could be hugely beneficial to you or a family member so please do come and join other AT users as we share our experiences and support each other along the way.
