Tiresias Accessible Tourism Guidelines

22/04/2008 | 0 comments

Tiresias logoWhy should venue owners consider accessible tourism? This website provides links to a range of resources that tourist venue owners can use to gain insight and develop their services for disabled and elderly tourists.  The information was compiled as part of the EU funded 'Happy Tourist' project.

Tiresias.org is the RNIB Scientific Research Unit's website, providing guidelines on accessibility issues for all types of disabilities, for designers of information and communication technology (ICT) systems.

The site also offers in-depth information on: assistive devices and agencies for blind and partially sighted people, current and future research, as well as information about tactile reading.

The site is primarily for professionals who work in the field of visual disabilities and for all people who have an interest in alleviating the problems faced by people with disabilities.
