Our mission

Emerging indoor navigation technologies hold the key to a revolution in independent navigation for blind and partially sighted people. In order to achieve the greatest impact globally, we need to develop a consistent standard across wayfinding systems.

This will truly open up a world where vision impaired people are no longer held back by their sight loss, removing barriers to employment, to meeting friends and family and engaging in their community.

The Wayfindr Open Standard aims to do just that.

Wayfindr Community

We want to see audio wayfinding solutions implemented across the world, in transport networks, shopping centres, hospitals and other places. We can’t do this alone. Through the Wayfindr Community, we are uniting venue owners, digital navigation services, experts in vision impairment and other interested parties.
