Hello Allison,
We actually use Campus Bird. I have a lot to talk about in terms of accessibility. Would you like to give me a call and discuss?

Thank You,
Thomas Burdick

Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience with accessibility of interactive campus maps? Our campus is looking specifically at CampusBird.

I found one relevant FAQ on their site:

Do you offer a Section 508 compatible map?

"Yes, we offer a text-only version of the map as part of the monthly subscription to meet 508 compliance. This version is screenreader enabled and does not use any Javascript."

Is offering a text-only version really enough for screen reader users? Aside from that, I can already see that keyboard navigation is going to be a problem, and I'm sure there are others, too. Any feedback would be helpful.
