New accessibility app shows the way around campus
You can now find your way around our whole campus with our new free app, AccessAble Salford Uni.
Developed by Estates and Property Services in partnership with DisabledGo (the leading provider of access information for disabled people in the UK), this brand new app includes detailed accessibility information about lecture halls, cafes and bars, toilets, and halls of residence.
The launch of the app continues the University’s strong commitment to equality and inclusive design – so that our campus can be used by everyone. We have worked with DisabledGo since 2008, to provide trusted accessibility information about our campus.
A DisabledGo surveyor visited every venue assessed it in person to help collate the correct data.
The app is available on both Android and Apple, and has the following features:
AccessAroundMe – instant detailed access guide with information about ramps, lifts, accessible toilets, and more
Find A Loo – highlights the closest accessible toilet on campus to your current location.
MyWayToGo – directs you to a chosen accessible place on campus.
FindMeNow – an in-built emergency locator that sends your GPS location to your chosen emergency contact by email or SMS.
AccessMyWay – you can filter results to match your own specific access requirements, such as accessible toilets, car parking, changing places and hearing assistance.
Mobile screen reader compatible – AccessAble is compatible with Apple’s VoiceOver software and Android’s Talkback, making all the access information accessible.
