Edmonton International Airport has become easier to navigate for the visually impaired

We here at Blind Travels are huge supporters of the visually impaired traveling solo whenever possible. Finding the proper tools to be able to effectively and safely travel solo is important. Whether you use a Guide Dog, or a White Cane, companies which aid accessibility are still a must for efficient travel. Aira (link and end of article) pioneered visual interpretation, a service which utilizes the camera on a user’s smartphone to allow an agent to direct and interpret visual information.  Aira has an ever growing network of airports which are supported by their service. Recently Edmonton International Airport (EIA) teamed up with Aira to offer live, real-time assistance to people with visual impairments at the airport.
