Sight and Sound Technology Podcast host, Stuart, sits down with Neil Barnfather, Vice President, Europe for Goodmaps. GoodMaps was born out of the American Printing House for the Blind (APH). Founded in 2019 and based out of Louisville, GoodMaps (previously named Access Explorer) was created by APH with a simple mission: to further the cause of accessible navigation. Realizing that the mission of universal accessible navigation was limited by the lack of indoor digital mapping, the GoodMaps platform and company were born.
