Ever wondered where to go after you step onto the platform or how to find your train when you leave the bus or taxi? Ever felt lost in the maze of tunnels and galleries where no natural light reaches you? Ever been left wondering what the sign really means when you don't know where you are, let alone where you're going?
Describe Online, a web site in the UK, is publishing text guides to public premises, on a web site which is accessible to all who can benefit from this information. Ever been shocked by the silence you received when you hoped to hear the information you've been waiting for?
The site contains guidance information relating to the London Underground and National Rail networks, together with our first guide to a town centre. It also contains an accessible National Rail map and National Rail station finder as well as a growing number of guides to stations throughout the country.
With Describe Online's text guides of various locations, the user can better understand a location before traveling. It's almost like having a tour guide telling you what's around! Describe Online is co-operating with public information websites to make their pages more accessible and user friendly. They can produce a text guide to your premises, which would include the routes to and from public transport. Their guides range from instructions to customers telling them where to obtain assistance from staff, to descriptions of the entire premises in whatever detail is agreed to be appropriate. Some of their guides include:
- Sight Village 2005
- London Underground
- National Rail
- Watford Town Centre
If you are planning a trip to any of these locations, check out the text guides to insure you are prepared before you travel. A similar site is planned for the United States in the future.
