“Access” Documentary Filmmaker Shares Man’s “Typical Day” Wayfinding with Technology

Storyteller and filmmaker Chris Higgins has released a short documentary about accessibility. It follows Cory Joseph through a typical day, showing how he uses his smartphone, Braille display, tactile watch, and guide dog to navigate the world. Higgins describes the film making experience in his blog, “I wanted to make a film that would raise the consciousness of creative people, and help them understand why accessibility is important.” Higgins and Joseph are perfectly paired to give viewers greater insights to challenges and solutions to making the environment more accessible to people with visual impairments.
