26 - Accessible Travel Tips with Claudette Medefindt of Retina SA

Lois Strachan speaks to Claudette Medefindt, who is one of the founders and Head of Science at Retina SA, and deputy president of Retina International.

Claudette has travelled to 47 different countries and shares advice and tips on how to travel, things to avoid, and things to do - and not just for travellers with visual impairments, not just for travellers with physical disabilities, but for all travellers and this episode is really packed with great information.

In our Travel Tech Corner, we launch our partnership with Edit Microsystems, an assistive technology company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Each episode will spotlight an assistive device that will assist travellers with disabilities. This episode introduces the Victor Reader Trek which is GPS for the blind, designed by Humanware.
