This report is designed to inform the community of executives overseeing complex facilities, public spaces, transportation hubs, campuses, shopping malls as well as accessibility experts, system integrators, advocates, local governments and policy makers about the considerable promises of audio indoor navigation for people who are blind or visually impaired.

The report examines the current state of technologies for indoor positioning and navigation and the importance of a technology neutral standardized approach to providing audio guidance to blind end- users. It describes how Wayfindr successfully enrolled the support of the International Telecommunication Union and worked with its accessibility experts to issue a standard in a record time in March 2017 as ITU-T Recommendation F.921.
