The WayAround App is designed to be simple, accessible, and intuitive for anyone with any degree of vision loss. This guide provides step-by-step instructions to get you started using WayAround quickly and effectively.
WayAround is an NFC-based information system that works with an app on your Android or iOS based smart device. It gives on-demand details about everyday things, just by scanning a smart tag placed on any object.
We are big fans of labeling, no matter what kind of label you use. WayAround lets you store much more information than traditional labels do. The description can be many paragraphs long (up to 2K characters). Our smart fields let you add other details, too, like expiration dates, ingredients, laundering instructions, and more.
WayAround was created by Blind InSites, LLC, a company started by two architects with vision loss. Learn more about our founders, Darwin and Armand.
