There is a new disability ‘black spot’ app that helps you report all kinds of access problems.
Developed by the Australian Greens, the ‘Access all areas’ smartphone app enables people to quickly and easily report any access failures they encounter.
But the ‘Access all areas’ app isn't just about the barriers. It is also being used to share people’s positive experiences – the good news about any services, businesses, events and facilities that you experience which are inclusive and easily accessible to all people.
