Inclusion starts
with accessibility

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.

Our Story

Since we launched in March 2016, more than 800 venues have turned their public spaces into accessible environments for people with low-vision or orientation challenges. RightHear users can now independently access hundreds of places that used to be inaccessible for them, in 26 different languages.

Every day, new places are joining our network of accessible environments and more and more users are joining our growing global community of independent travelers.

The RightHear story started in Israel in 2015 with Gil Elgrably and Idan Meir, who were initially working on another shopping related startup. During their work, they found an indoor micro-positioning technology that allowed them to provide coupons precisely in-store and were amazed by the endless opportunities it could provide in other fields. 

As both of them are very socially aware, they decided to leave that startup behind and build a new one that would be focusing on utilizing this new technology for the benefit of people with low vision and other orientation challenges.

This is when RightHear was born.

About us

Independence, Passion, and Equality are our main values.
