Google wants to ensure those in wheelchairs have access to the accessibility information they need before visiting places around the world. The search giant is asking its Local Guides, those who contribute information about places on Google Makes, to make an effort to answer questions about wheelchair accessibility. "If each of our tens of millions of Local Guides answers three of these questions every day for two weeks, we can gather nearly two billion answers to help people who rely on this information every day," explained Google. Local Guides use Google Maps on their mobile devices to add photos of locations as well as answer simple yes/no questions. Google hopes Local Guides will provide the missing information about wheelchair access a bit more aggressively in order to fill out its database. Participation in Local Guides is free and voluntary.
