Mobile app helps the blind bus stops
A mobile application will be launched this month by the Perkins School for the Blind in the US that helps the blind and visually impaired find bus stops along their routes.
Volunteers can log in to the app and set routes using landmarks or clues that can be used to get to their nearest bus stops.
The makers say the app can be used by everyone as it depends on GPS technology.
The app aims to give the exact location of an address.
