St. John's receives positive feedback on BlindSquare Event Application

This summer the City of St. John’s and CNIB piloted the BlindSquare Event Application at the Downtown Pedestrian Mall.

There was a public engagement process in September and October.

Responses were primarily positive with a consensus for the City to continue to implement the BlindSquare Event app not only at the pedestrian mall but in other locations as well.

One concern with the app was that it was available on Apple devices but not Android devices. BlindSquare has indicated that an android version is in development but has yet to confirm an official release date.

The BlindSquare Event application is an accessible navigation and wayfinding tool designed for individuals with low vision or blindness, or any person who would benefit from a wayfinding tool to navigate an area safely.
