For 6 years now, GearedApp has been building apps, websites and digital platforms of all shapes and sizes. Over this time we have had the support of some amazing people, who share our values and are keen to make an impact with tech. We have been really lucky to work with clients who also feel the same way, and are focused towards helping make the world a better place, in whatever small way we can.
Today we want to talk about a few of our amazing clients who are doing their bit for the world.
Good Food Talks
Since 2014 we have worked with Matt Wadsworth from Good Food Talks to build a revolutionary menu reading app for those with visual impairments.
Matt and his wife Kate founded Good Food Talks as a result of their first-hand experience of the frustrations encountered by blind and visually impaired diners when eating out at restaurants.
At the time, accessible menu formats consisted of either a braille version, if they had one, or someone else reading the menu to them aloud. This made the whole experience less enjoyable and hindered visually impaired diners’ independence.
In response to this, we worked with Matt to build an app that uses Voiceover and accessibility features to provide “talking menus”. This app gives visually impaired users ability to browse the menu freely, explore options at their leisure, and independently order at a restaurant.
Since launching the Good Food Talks MVP in 2015, the Good Food Talks app has gained traction and is now being used by some of the biggest restaurant brands in the UK, including Nando’s, Pret A Manger and Strada. A huge milestone this year has been the adoption of the app by JD Wetherspoons across over 900 pubs.
We are excited to work with Matt to keep building the platform, reach international markets and help make a positive impact to users globally.
