A big city has much to offer. And a good sense of direction helps to navigate its labyrinth of streets.
Yet, how is that possible for people with limited vision? The answer to this question is supplied by a startup from Chile.
Their app takes users through a city by voice, providing an audio description of sites, and even connecting with businesses. GPS ensures destinations are reached safely.
More spontaneous searches, for a quick coffee, say, are also supported. Audible messages help users negotiate traffic, public transport, or, simply, life as a pedestrian.
The app promotes independence and makes cities accessible for all.
Good to hear as we only knew about a concept developed by a university.
