    Navigation system for handicapped #WheelchairUsers #mobility

    Do you know this problem too? I try to find the way or plan a tour on a place I don't know. There are plenty of different navigation systems. But... Non of them has an option for wheelchair user. So... If I go for the settings for pedestrian, it doesn't take long and I have to turn around because of obstacles (stair, too steep, door, too narrow....) but if I choose the one for bikes, then it doesn't take long and I end up on a crossroad without a sidepath or even on a street with speedlimit 80. It is so frustrating having to turn around on and on or even getting stuck sometimes (as too steep to turn around) We have a limit of distance by mobility and pain, but still are the ones not getting support by all these big companies for navigation systems. And it isn't just a problem in my country, it is a global one.

    US Mighties, quick question please: Is it the norm for people to use words like 'crippled' or 'handicapped'? Cos 'Family Guy' is 😨

    Is such language still 'okay' to be on TV? I'm honestly asking, because shows in the UK don't use such language.

    I'm watching an episode of 'Family Guy'' and it's horrible! Like...the amount of ableist language and constant discrimination 🤢
