Uber updates app to help deaf drivers
June 28, 2016
App based cab service Uber has added new features to its app for its deaf and hearing impaired drivers in the United States.
Now a light will flash alongwith the existing audio cue every time a new trip is requested. The option for passengers to call the driver will be blocked and riders who want to provide special pickup instructions can only text.
The app also adds an extra screen for passengers to enter their destination alongwith a note that lets them know their driver is deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Uber is testing these special features in four cities across the US for now.
