With the pandemic process, social distance rules and minimum contact became important. Menus are one of the surfaces that customers and business employees come into contact with the most. With the digital menu software developed with Mangodo Digital, JCI Avrasya offers a new generation solution that reduces contact in cafes, restaurants and tourism businesses. The digital menu application, which can be used by all businesses such as restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels, enables quick and easy access to menus by reading the QR code from mobile phones. Same zamThe menu is voiced at the same time, offering both the visually impaired and the citizens who want to listen and use the menu.


As JCI Avrasya, thanks to the partnership we have made with Mangodo Digital, we implemented the Audio Menu for the Visually Impaired project and brought an Barrier-Free Menu to the society.


Thanks to JCI Avrasya cooperation with Mangodo Digital, sound can be added to the digital menu. Thus, it provides easy access to the menu for visually impaired customers. Filiz Tüfek, president of JCI Eurasia, shares the following information about their cooperation: “Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs Association - JCI is an international association of young leaders and entrepreneurs aged 18 to 40. As a result of our cooperation with Mangodo Digital, we will add menu voiceovers to the menus. Thus, the visually impaired will be able to dominate the menu contents. This is an important point. Because they don't know the menu, they usually give the same orders. This part of the work will be mentored by Şebnem Karakuş, a visually impaired friend of our JCI Eurasia member. It contributes to the employment of the visually impaired with the income obtained by creating a voice over pool. We find this project very valuable for chain cafes, restaurants and hotels to own it.
