BlindSquare Airport EVENT



About BlindSquare Enabled Airports

MIPsoft, makers of BlindSquare, the most used 
waypoint  navigation solution for persons who are 
blind or partially sighted,  has created a 
special version of BlindSquare, made available 
for use when entering or exiting BlindSquare Enabled Airports.

Access is enabled through the 
available for free on the iTunes store.

Travellers arriving at BlindSquare Enabled 
Airports, whether by ground or air, will be able 
to activate BlindSquare Airport Event 
automatically be provided with free use, 
regardless of location and continue with the 
support of BlindSquare EVENT for the next 7 days.
    * When arriving by ground (for departure), or 
by air (on arrival),  BlindSquare Airport EVENT 
is ready for use at ANY destination airport on 
the globe.   This, to assist in completing the 
journey to connect to ground transportation on 
arrival, hotels, meetings, places to eat and 
places of fun, supported with all the tools of 
BlindSquare and 105,000,000+ points of interest 
globally.  When returning to any sponsored 
airport, the 7 day counter is renewed, for another 7 days.
    * Interactive maps:

At BlindSquare Enabled Airports:

    * BlindSquare’s value begins when stepping 
outside and connecting to GPS satellites.
    * BlindSquare will also make available 
scheduled flight information, with the caveat 
that for most airports this information should be 
used with caution as this information does not include live updates.
    * For airports covered with Apple Maps 
indoors, the service will enable the creation of 
personal points of interest (POIs) in a manner identical to travel outdoors.
    * Travellers arriving at BlindSquare Enabled 
Airports, whether by ground or air, will be able 
to activate BlindSquare Airport Event and 
automatically be provided with free use of the 
app for the next seven days. This access remains 
active when the user arrives at their 
destination, regardless of whether that airport 
is BlindSquare Enabled – so that users can 
complete their journey and connect to local 
ground transportation, hotels and amenities. When 
returning to any sponsored airport, app access is 
renewed for another seven days to facilitate the journey home.

Join us, in the celebration of independent travel 
as the ribbon is cut on 
Accessibility Awareness day 2017.  Press releases 
will be released in tandem with national 
blindness organizations in Canada and New Zealand 
(Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) 
and Blind Foundation) and the US sponsor (Bank of America).

Example Story:

A traveller arrives at a BlindSquare Enabled 
Airport by car.  BlindSquare EVENT is started (or 
newly downloaded) from the 
store.  EVENT is automatically “enabled for use 
for 7 days”. The traveller flies to any world 
destination, knowing that they will continue  to 
have access to EVENT for 7 days to complete their 
journey on arrival.  Step outside, and things 
become easy and entertaining.  Hailing an UBER, 
picking a restaurant, searching for an address or 
a feature of interest - all at their 
fingertips.  This, regardless of location and 
regardless if the destination airport is BlindSquare Enabled.

When they fly back to their home airport, EVENT 
is restarted and automatically “recharged” for 7 
more days, to support the continuation of their journey, home.

Step outside, the world is described as the 
journey continues.  This, to encourage and 
support independent travel for persons who are 
blind/partially sighted, freely offered.
