Wheel New York: Yelp for wheelchair access

All this week we're looking at how technology is helping people with disabilities approach their lives in new ways. We've spoken to academics as well as technology designers and engineers. Today we’re talking with Jennifer Feinberg, the brains behind an app called Wheel New York. If it raises enough cash on crowdfunding site Kickstarter, Wheel New York could become like a Yelp for wheelchair access.

Feinberg joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
