What is WayAround?
WayAround is an NFC-based information system that works with an app on your Android or iOS-based smart device. It gives on-demand details about everyday things, just by scanning a smart tag placed on any object.
How is WayAround different from braille or tactile labeling systems?
WayAround lets you store much more information than traditional labels do. The description can be many paragraphs long (up to 2K characters). The smart fields let you add other details, too, like expiration dates, ingredients, laundering instructions, and more.
I thought WayAround was for getting around in public spaces. Is that still true?
Yes! WayAround 3.0, released in Fall 2019, included WayAround for Public Spaces. This powerful software gives anyone the ability to write public information. It’s great for schools, universities, museums, municipalities, and facilities that want to provide better information for everyone, especially those with vision loss.
