Accessible Qatar app
New app advises on the disability access of locations in Doha Discuss this article
The disabled community and other individuals are now able to view popular public and touristic venues in and around Qatar, to see whether and how they will be able to access these places before actually going there. All this can be done from the comfort of their smartphones, with Sasol’s new application Accessible Qatar, available in Arabic and English, free of charge.
The app currently features around 50 locations, ranging from hotels to public parks, and has detailed information about each location, and how it caters to people with different types of disabilities. The app allows users to rate and submit their own reviews as well.
The application aims to allow the disabled community and tourists to move around confidently, without having to anticipate whether or not they will have access to enter. They can arrive and leave any spot, without unwelcome surprises that possibly limit their access. This will also encourage venues to modify their premises to become more inclusive.
Accessible Qatar builds on Sasol’s ongoing Definitely Able Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, and users can keep tabs on the latest developments across the company’s various social media channels.
The Accessible Qatar app is available for download free of charge on Apple App Store, Google Play store for Android, Windows Phone Store and on the website (www.accessibleqatar.com), which is also available for desktop access.By Time Out Doha staff
