If it’s been a while since we’ve spoken: WheelChariot is a groundbreaking website and future mobile app that focuses on rating and reviewing businesses based on their accessibility for people with disabilities. With the support of numerous organizations and an advisory board of accessibility experts, we have developed a platform that not only empowers people with disabilities and their caretakers but also incentivizes businesses to prioritize accessibility.
We also kindly ask that if you are part of the disability community, have friends or family in the community, or work for resource/advocacy groups, please share the interest form with your networks. Expanding our reach to more individuals who are passionate about accessibility will help us make an even bigger impact.
As we move forward, community feedback is crucial to refining our platform and ensuring it meets the needs of its users. By participating in the beta, you will have the unique opportunity to shape the future of WheelChariot and help create a more inclusive society.
To join the open beta, we only ask that you commit to:
1. Writing at least 10 reviews during the month of May.
2. Providing feedback through a survey or, preferably, a sit-down session with our team.
Selected participants will be notified before May and granted access to the site starting May 1st.
Our journey so far has been both challenging and rewarding, but we are confident that with your support, we can transform the way businesses are rated and reviewed, making accessibility a top priority. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this exciting movement – fill out the interest form today!
