City Guide

Design, development and introduction of an accessible city guide integrated in Madrid City Council's new portal


The city guide provides the public with information about streets and points of interest, route calculation and search functions and access to aerial photographs.

The main feature of the new city guide is accessibility for the disabled, as it allows full navigation without use of the computer mouse and the possibility of automatic text reading for people with serious sight problems or who are completely blind.

This city guide complies with the guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium, at its AA level, as well as those of UNE standard 139803:2004.
