Rick Hansen Foundation Launches Global Accessability Map: The online tool is available at www.rickhansenglobalaccessibilitymap.com, where visitors are invited to create an account, and begin rating venues from a mobility, hearing, or sight perspective. Ratings are based on accessibility criteria provided within the tool. In this first phase, the web-based tool is accessed by desktop, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry Torch, and devices using Android 2.2 or above on the Opera Mobile browser. The long term goal of the Global Accessibility Map includes the development of a professional ratings tool as well as ongoing enhanced functionality that further meets the needs of all consumers.
