At the end of last year, we received great help from you!
As part of our Duplatét campaign, we asked you to support our unique urban barrier-free database in Hungary. https://peoplefirst.hu/akadalymentes-pecs/
Thanks to the application of the Emberség Erejével Alapítvány/Power of Humanity Foundation, we were able to double the HUF 250,000 we received from you as a donation! We will be forever grateful to all our Hungarian and foreign supporters.
We want you to know WHAT WE SPENT YOUR GENEROUS DONATION ON LAST YEAR:
First, take a look at how many excavated locations we’ve been able to revisit and update.
This is an extremely important part of the Barrier-free Pécs Database, as an accessible database is useless if its information is not up-to-date!
WE ASK YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE LOCATIONS AND WRITE WHAT YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED IN THE DATABASE AS AN OPINION! We also welcome opinions in English and German.
You help a lot with this for other people with disabilities, people with strollers, the elderly, and everyone for whom accessibility is good.
The following locations have been updated and expanded with new information and photos:
Laterum Hotel: https://peoplefirst.hu/directory/akadalymentes-pecs/laterum/
Széchenyi Square public toilet: https://peoplefirst.hu/…/akadalymentes-pecs/szechenyi-ter/
Nana Bistro&Bar: https://peoplefirst.hu/directory/akadalymentes-pecs/nana/
Clinic downtown: https://peoplefirst.hu/…/akadalymente…/rendelointezet-2/
Vásárcsarnok/Market Hall: https://peoplefirst.hu/…/akadalymentes-pecs/vasarcsarnok/
Selyemgyár Kulturális Negyed: https://peoplefirst.hu/…/selyemgyar-kulturalis-negyed/
Városháza/Town hall: https://peoplefirst.hu/dire…/akadalymentes-pecs/varoshaza/
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR OPINIONS ABOUT EACH SITE IN THE DATABASE!
Another important piece of information is the accessibility of websites, especially since in Hungary this is mandatory by law.
An accessible website is especially important for visually impaired people, who without it will not be able to get any information about a location.
We did not check the websites when the Barrier-free Pécs Database was launched, so now we have LOOKED AT EVERY SINGLE WEBSITE GOING BACK TO 2018 and included it in the descriptions!
We may still have one or two backlogs, but we will make up for it.
It was a huge task, as was the CAPTIONING OF ALL IMAGES AND ILLUSTRATIONS on the website, which is also a great help for our blind and visually impaired site visitors. We captioned the images in three ways.
We are happy to hear from stakeholders whether we are doing it properly. Thank you in advance, you will greatly help our work!
If you consider it important and would like to support the database, you can do so by clicking on the Adományozok/Donate button on our website with any amount of money. You can even support our work continuously.
